Straight from the trenches (make that the rink), Hell on Wheels eyeballs the dizzying clash of athleticism, exhibitionism, ego, politics and business that defines today's roller derby. Back in 2001, a group of young female players on Austin's legendary music scene proved tough-minded, hard-hitting players of another sort when they turned their energies toward resurrecting and revamping a sport whose glory days had long since passed: competitive team roller skating. Sexing it up with plenty of rock-and-roll swagger, they overcame myriad obstacles to usher roller derby into the 21st century -- only to watch their fledgling organization founder amid internal strife. But as two leagues emerged from the rubble, they went on to spark an international roller derby revival -- inspiring the formation of hundreds of clubs all over the world, from New York and Los Angeles to the Cayman Islands and New Zealand (not to mention Edmonton).
