Ovarian Psycos

Single mom Xela, artist Andi, and newcomer Evie are members of Ovarian Psycos -- an unapologetic bicycle crew of young, Latina misfits from Eastside Los Angeles. By the light of the full moon they ride the streets together, seeking sisterhood as protection from the violence in their neighborhoods and broken homes.

Their motto: “Ovaries so big, we don’t need fucking balls.”
