This documentary chronicles the travails and on-the-road experiences of a trio of professional bowlers as they travel the annual cross-country winter tournament circuit. Tony is only 21, but finds life on the circuit the fulfillment of his childhood ambition. Bob is 25 and sure that he will be the next national champion as is 26-year-old champion Anton.
All three young men want to make it to the top. Their struggles are contrasted with the self-assured playing of the reigning bowling champ Walter Ray Williams.
