    Riina in this documentary is the wrestling queen Regina Rosendahl, who yearns to win the Finnish championship of professional wrestling and rise to stardom. She is studying social services and finances her studies by doing industrial cleaning as well as sex work on the internet. The film invites us along to script meetings of professional wrestling, into the ring to hurl opponents and outside of it to celebrate victories. Is Riina ready to embrace tradionally masculine means? And is that what feminism is all about?
