Supergirl follows a slight, 95-pound, nine-year-old Orthodox Jewish girl named Naomi as she prepares for two major life events—her Bat Mitzvah, the symbolic entrance to womanhood in Jewish tradition, and the biggest powerlifting competition of her life, where she is attempting to break a new world record in the 97 pound weight class. Along with the universal struggles of adolescence, Naomi must deal with strict religious traditions, cyberbullying, and health issues.
