In the search for a Lady Machismo the rules are simple; pin her on her back for ten seconds and triumph! Methods are free, only limited to your own compassion. But like in relationships, even simple rules means different things for different players, and for every fight or relation, the rules are made up in the playing. The game becomes the construction and deconstruction of convention, striving to stay on top causing as little hurt as possible, for you and your opponent or partner. However, this is not a tragedy nor drama.
This is a violent yet tender pornographic comedy of five women finding the limit of their own empathy, pain and physical strength. It is a futile sadomasochistic venture that leaves us in a burlesque dance of willpower, enticing us to explore the macho violence within female sexuality. Do we really want to win the game? What are we actually fighting for?
