When a nine-year-old girl breaks a powerlifting world record, she turns into an international phenomenon and Supergirl is born.
Naomi Kutin seems like a typical Orthodox Jewish pre-teen, until her extraordinary talent transforms the lives of her family and thrusts her into news headlines. 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.

With a passionate family supporting her each step of the way, Naomi must learn to accept herself and discover she is as strong inside as she is outside.
