It’s the first home bout for the Misfit Mavericks, a rag tag roller derby team in Larkin City Ohio. In just over a year they’ve trained up from nothing to become a fierce pack of quad squad rollers. Now the Misfits are on their own turf, and hope to become hometown heroes. Will the roller derby give Larkin City something to root for? Or will the team’s quick success send them spiraling out of control?
