    • Synopsis
    • "WOMEN WITH CLAW" tells the story of a group of women survivors of breast cancer who meets to row.
      The practice of rowing style "Dragon Boat" prevents the formation of lymphedemas in the arms of the women who were operated, since it favors lymphatic drainage naturally replacing, in some cases, the sessions of kinesiology.
      For its part, the rowing boat sport technique is ancient and comes from China. From its implementation as a therapeutic activity, “pink teams” of women cancer survivors, nucleated in the IBCPC, are formed worldwide.
      Nahuel Rosa is formed in 2016, but it is not until the following year that they begin rowing on a regular basis. At the beginning they do it at the edge of a sink, then they get a loafer to go to Lake Nahuel Huapi, and finally they are integrated as a subcommission to the Bariloche Race Club.
      From that moment on, they started campaigning to buy their own "Dragon Boat", to spread the activity of rowing and the importance of prevention. Also participate in regattas and events related to rowing, but the biggest challenge is to apply for Bariloche to host the Dragon Boat World Championship.
      The documentary, as a witness camera, accompanies the group in their practices, in the actions they take to raise awareness about the importance of prevention and in the steps they take to achieve those goals.
