Since she was five years old, Yasmin Lander only had one dream: she wanted to become a professional wrestler. As her character Penelope - a posh upper-class girl from Cambridge - she struggles to get attention. After she reinvents herself as the fearless tomboy Charlie Morgan, she starts to win more and more matches. But then she gets injured during a show and has to rest for several months, just to come back stronger and more determined than ever before.
EYE CANDY is a 60-minutes documentary about a strong woman in a once male-dominated sports, who fights to get respected as entertainer, athlete and homosexual woman.
