Rose, Leila and Susan are three seemingly ordinary Ugandan women concerned with homes, families and jobs, but they also share the dream of becoming champion rally drivers.
In Uganda, women traditionally defer to the men in their families and face discrimination in many areas of life.
So the three women face the double challenge of achieving sporting success while fighting prejudice and sexism in the male world of motor rallying.
The film documents the journey the women take as they struggle to put together their challenges for the Pearl of Africa Uganda Rally 2009, the most coveted motor sports title in East Africa.
They have to overcome the substantial hurdles of raising sponsorship and preparing a race-worthy and competitive car.
It is a daunting challenge – and a race with a dramatic outcome. Super Ladies offers a fascinating insight into the heart of modern Uganda.
