Following the lives of a group of girls who are learning to become auto mechanics, OUAGA GIRLS shows bravery through breaking out of traditional stereotypes. The energy, playfulness and sisterhood of the girls is captured in this observation of everyday life, with humour and often poignancy. Touching and personal moments reveal that these women are simply trying to find their place in the world by saying, ‘A woman can do any job she likes, if she decides to.’
