ROLLING STRONG tells the story of the first wheelchair rugby team in Peru, a group of men and women from different cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. A former felon, a high class woman, and a family man, among others, got together in December 2012 to play a new sport about which they knew very little. The film follows them for two years, showing their process of coming together as a team, the excitement of their first international tournaments, and the goals, dreams, and motivations that guide their daily struggle, both inside the court and in their personal lives.
