Luz wants to get the hell out of Benavides, Texas. The way she can get out is either through the Army or through a weight lifting scholarship to college. Her brother is in the Army and she has seen his dream of college disappearing and that's not for her. So she's going to lift her way out. Problem is she can't always make weight and the pressure to succeed for herself and her family is overwhelming at times. Luz doesn't get everything right. She screws up, she loses her scholarship, she disappoints, but she refuses to give up and fights for herself and her future.

All She Can is playing in several cities as part of the Maya Indie Film Series. Check out the schedule here.
