Welcome to the battlefield. From the treadmill to the taco truck, Madonna Arms follows the internal struggle of chaos, terror and hope as one woman attempts to lose weight.

Madonna Arms is a fantastical sci-fi exploration of the ways in which power, strength and fitness live and die in the body and psyche of a young woman. Absurd, hilarious and ultimately heart-wrenching, Madonna Arms is a humorous and dangerous look at a vicious cultural logic we have learned to accept as part of our everyday lives – as futile and devastating as war.
