In 1972, filmmaker Robert Kaylor (Carny) and producer William Richert set out to shoot a documentary about roller derby when the 23-year-old Snell walked in to the locker room during an interview and announced his intention to become the next big roller derby sensation. Kaylor and Richert switched gears to explore the life of a young tire company employee and discovered a world of deceit and ulterior motives as Snell relentlessly pursued his dream. Derby follows in the footsteps of the Maysles brothers as it exposes the decay of American culture pit against the backdrop of a spectator sport that thrives on the spectacle of human combat.
A young man living in Dayton, Ohio dreams of quitting his boring but steady job as a factory worker, and becoming a professional roller derby skater
