On the road in 1972, the action packed, rough and tumble world of Roller Derby grabs the spotlight when a brash young rookie from New York City’s mean streets takes on the sport’s beloved but aging star in a battle royal for the right to be crowned the reigning Roller Derby Queen. Promoted by the game’s wheeler dealer manager, the pair tears up the track, rockin’ and rollin’ with the ten decidedly colorful gals and guys on their team, famous to fans across America as the world champion Bombers. Along the way, the rivals meet their match, discovering more than they ever dared to dream about life, love and how the game is played.
