Dream. Believe. Achieve.

Featuring fierce rivalry, stopwatch suspense, and larger-than-life personalities, the critically acclaimed Murderball, winner of the Documentary Audience Award and a Special Jury Prize for Editing at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, is a film about tough, highly competitive rugby players; Quadriplegic rugby players. Whether by a car wreck, fist fight, gun shot, or rogue bacteria, these men were f-rced 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.

From the gyms of middle-America to the Olympic arena in Athens, Greece, Murderball tells the story of a group of world-class athletes unlike any ever shown on screen. In addition to smashing chairs, it will smash every stereotype you ever had about the disabled. It is a film about family, revenge, honor, sex (yes, they can) and the triumph of love over loss. But most of all, it is a film about standing up, even after your spirit - and your spine- has been crushed.
