This aint no cheerleading clinic, yall!

Meet Bliss Cavendar, an indie-rock-loving misfit stuck in the tiny town of Bodeen, Texas. Her pageant-addicted mother expects her to compete for the coveted Miss Bluebonnet crown, but Bliss would rather feast on roaches than be subjected to such rhinestone tyranny.

     Blisss escape? Roller Derby.

     When she discovers a league in nearby Austin, Bliss embarks on an epic journey full of hilarious tattooed girls, delicious boys in bands, and a few not-so-awesome realities even the most hard-core derby chick has to learn.

Synopsis:

Bliss Cavendar takes up Roller Derby and soon embarks on an epic journey full of a few not-so-awesome realities. Now adapted as the feature film "Whip It!" starring Ellen Page ("Juno") and Drew Barrymore, who also directs.

Synopsis:

Roller derby is back, in all of its rowdy and raucous glory.
