Billy Mitchell turned into a legend when he set a Donkey Kong record in the early 1980s that remained unchallenged for almost 25 years, until Steve Wiebe, a teacher by profession took up the game while being unemployed and broke mitchell’s recond at Funspot, an annual tournament; the top scores are monitored by a cadre of players and fans associated with Walter Day, who runs the tournament. But Mitchell does not back down, he immediately sets a new record surpassing Steve’s record; to which Steve replies by travelling to Florida in the hope of beating Mitchell at the 2007 Guinness World Records.

The documentary shows the mind games played and heightens the anticipation of finding out the winner in the end.
