Mark Woollen's thoroughly entertaining documentary explores the rise and fall of the American Roller Derby League, a collection of rough-and-tumble athletes who made their sport one of the biggest draws in televised sports in the late 1960s. Filmed over a span of seven years, the film chronicles the plight of the forgotten league and its skaters as they struggle to come to terms with obscurity and search for a way to reclaim the spotlight.
