This documentary goes through the story of several women who come across each other in a funny meeting point: the roller derby track, a sport they’re passionate about and invites them to put all their strength on the skates.

What do an emergency room doctor, a lawyer, and a homemaker have in common? Their everyday lives are very different, but there’s something that connects them: roller derby. Everyone who has seen Drew Barrymore’s Whip It has an idea of what that is: a contact sport, but on four-wheel skates. When they are playing, the girls wear make up, dress up, and pick a derby name, which can range from “Violent Pussy” to “Animal”, including some moderated ones like “Diamantina” or “Miss Marple”. But they also know that the game is the most important thing of all. Because roller derby makes them fell free, with no other obligation but winning. The Derby Direction allows us to peek into the private world of each one of them, and also their teams: the powerful combination of the two nurtures this documentary, and also the lives of these women who step out to the track with guts and swag.
