Glena is a feature-length documentary film about Glena Avila - a single mother in her 30s - and her dream to become a professional mixed martial artist.
Glena was living the American Dream: successful career, two happy children, long-term relationship, a beautiful family home. Then one day, with no background or training, she decided to give cage fighting a try. And she was good…really good. But Glena's world begins to unravel: impending foreclosure, a painful custody dispute, a broken relationship with her teenage son. She puts it all on the line as she travels across the country to compete in a trilogy of epic matches.
Glena is a real-life Rocky story, a one-in-a-million tale about a woman who risked it all for her shot at the big time.
