I understand how to translate who in most contexts, and if I were saying the girl who I would put die Mädchen, die... (I think?)
But I'm wanting to say a girl who.
Could I say eine Mädchen, die?

The complete sentence is:
The movie is about a girl who wants to save her boyfriend.
Der Film ist uber ein Mädchen, die ihr Freund retten will.

    Right! The grammatical gender of "Mädchen" is neutral not female.
    "the girl, who"-"das Mädchen, das"
    "a girl who"-"ein Mädchen, das"
    your complete sentence has to be "Der Film ist über ein Mädchen, das ihren Freund retten will"
    Freund is accusative so has to be the possessive pronoun.
