The girls of Champ Camp are typical teenagers — eager to challenge the old ways and looking to make their mark. But there are differences. For one thing, Adla, Rahmeeh and We’am are Palestinians growing up in Jordan’s Al-Baqa’a refugee camp. For another, they can lift as much as 100 pounds and are aiming for an Olympic medal. Heavy Metal is a powerful film asking just what it means to be a strong young woman.
