Description: Jeannie Epper and Zoe Bell have been set on fire, thrown off buildings, dragged by wild horses and hit by cars. As Hollywood stuntwomen, they are the anonymous, blue-collar heroines of film and television, taking the hits that make actors into stars. They stand in for the rare female action-hero, the typical damsel in distress, and everything in between. Jeannie and Zoe, the stunt doubles for Wonder Woman and Xena: Warrior Princess, as they face the challenges of a dangerous and male-dominated profession. The real women behind these two world-famous icons are at drastically different crossroads in their lives. One, a grandmother, struggles with the aging process and Hollywood's dearth of older female roles; the other, a young woman, is brash and unaware of the history that has preceded her in this notoriously macho field. When Jeannie becomes a mentor for Zoe, these two women from opposite sides of the world and opposite ends of their careers find a way to survive in the industry together. Jeannie and Zoe struggle daily to stay employed, stay thin and stay sane--against the backdrops of Xena, Wonder Woman, 6 Feet Under, and Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill.
