Golden Arm

In the competitive world of Ladies Arm Wrestling, you gotta be tough as nails. Armed with mere strength and determination, these fierce women go head-to-head in dingy rest stops, hoping to battle their way to glory—and cash—at Nationals. When Danny, a boisterous trucker prone to picking bar fights, is injured in her Nationals-qualifying match against Brenda “The Bonecrusher,” she’ll do anything to stop her behemoth of an opponent. As she watches worthy challengers get picked off by Brenda’s dirty tricks, Danny recruits her old friend Mel (up-and-coming oddball Mary Holland). Waifish, recently divorced, and running a failing bakery, Mel doesn’t fit in amongst her muscled peers. Little do they know, she possesses a secret weapon only a woman of her small stature can: a Golden Arm. With some help from a delightful cast of badass comediennes, Mel must toughen up if she’s going to beat Brenda and win the coveted $15,000 prize. GLOW meets “Over the Top” in GOLDEN ARM—an uproarious celebration of female comradery that’s not afraid to break a few bones. — D.O.
