When a nine-year-old girl breaks a power lifting world record, she turns into an international sensation and 'Supergirl' is born. Naomi Kutin seems like a typical Orthodox Jewish pre-teen, until her extraordinary talent transforms the lives of her family and hurls her into news headlines. 'Supergirl' follows Naomi’s unique coming-of-age story as she fights to hold on to her title while navigating the perils of adolescence - from strict religious obligations to cyber-bullying, and health issues which could jeopardise her future in power lifting. Can she still be 'Supergirl' if she can no longer break world records? With a passionate family supporting her each step of the way, Naomi must learn to accept herself and discover she is as strong inside as she is outside.
