Pretty Brutal – Off the rink, all skaters are equal, but when the game of Roller Derby begins for Australasia’s first all-girl league, they discover some are more equal than others. Pretty Brutal follows self-titled girl skaters Pieces of Hate, Kid Vile and Naki Kronik into the full-contact world of New Zealand’s first Roller Derby league. Their challenge: work and train together as sisters in a democratic community, then savage each other come match day. As tension mounts, will they preserve their community or tear each other apart?
