Description
Naomi Kutin seems like a typical Orthodox Jewish pre-teen, until her extraordinary weight lifting talent thrusts her into news headlines and transforms the lives of her family . Supergirl follows Naomi’s unique coming-of-age story as she fights to hold on to her title while navigating the perils of adolescence-from strict religious obligations to cyber-bullying, and health issues which could jeopardize her future in powerlifting. Can she still be “Supergirl” if she can no longer break world records?

Preceded by a live musical performance by FOUNDATIONAL SOUL from Oakland School for the Arts!
