Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “The lives of tough, highly competitive rugby players. Paraplegic rugby players. Whether by car wreck, fist fight, gun shot, or rogue bacteria, these men were forced to live life sitting down. In their own version of the full-contact sport, they smash the hell out of each other in custom-made gladiator-like wheelchairs. And no, they don’t wear helmets.”
