Ovarian Psycos! are an unapologetic bicycle crew of young Latinas from Eastside Los Angeles. This documentary follows members of the gang as they head out on their monthly ride reclaiming their neighbourhood and creating safer streets for women. At first only attracting a few local women, the Ovarian Psycos have since inspired a crowd of locals to challenge the stereotypical expectations of femininity and be a visible force along the barrios and boulevards of Los Angeles. The film intimately explores the impact of the group’s brand of feminism on neighborhood women and communities as they confront the injustice, racism, and violence in their lives.
