These street racers have cut their teeth on the toughest races in the West Bank, roaring through the breakneck pathways and hairpin turns of improvised tracks that comprise Palestine’s makeshift motor circuit. But this group of five charismatic thrill-seekers is the Middle East’s first all-women street racing team, making the women trailblazers both culturally and literally. Defying stereotypes and racking up wins in the male-dominated racing scene, they must overcome obstacles both physical and societal in order to pursue their high-octane passion. Thrilling and inspirational, Speed Sisters introduces new Middle Eastern female role models.
