Remember Roller Derby? It’s back. There are 200 women’s roller derby leagues in the US. Most of them are less than 5 years old. And who are the skaters? You might be surprised. On Birmingham’s Tragic City Rollers roster there’s a librarian working on a master’s degree, an RN at Children’s hospital, and a Metro police officer who’s also a mom. They talk about sisterhood, self-actualization, and the satisfaction of a good smack well-delivered. This documentary follows a season with the team on and off the track to discover not only how the game is played, but why.
