Four women, one championship title on the line – in this ring, there can be no mercy.
Maya, the only Latina wrestler in Trailblazer Championship Wrestling, has been dreaming of winning her first-ever TCW Championship for her entire life. Over the span of one night, Maya must face her white girlfriend, her white rival, her white boss, and the commercialization of acceptable racism in route to finally achieving her dream. No Mercy explores women’s wrestling, legacy, family, queerness, being mixed-race, and cultural identity.
