Seth Gordon's documentary follows the exploits of the two best Donkey Kong players in America. Billy Mitchell has held the world record for the popular video game for over twenty years. The film covers his rise to prominence, and the circle of associates he keeps at the Twin Galaxies arcade, a place where he is revered for his prowess at a number of games. Eventually Steve Wiebe, with time on his hands now that he finds himself without a job, decides to challenge Mitchell's record. What unfolds is a wildly entertaining tale of intrigues that would put a Renaissance court to shame.
