Summary The Speed Sisters are the first all-woman race car driving team in the Middle East. Grabbing headlines and turning heads at improvised tracks across the West Bank, these five women have sped their way into the heart of the gritty, male dominated Palestinian street car racing scene. Weaving together their lives on and off the track, this takes viewers on a surprising journey into the drive to go further and faster than anyone thought they could.
Contents Extra feature: The speed sisters official soundtrack.
