Synopsis

Amusing documentary that follows two men in their efforts to take the high score record for Donkey Kong. After losing his job at Boeing, Steve Wiebe finds solace in the arcade game - playing every night when his family goes to bed. After months of practise he eventually beats Billy Mitchell's online record with a score of 1,000,000 points and becomes a celebrity in his hometown of Seattle. Billy, however, is not willing to admit defeat, and a cross-country duel for the title 'King of Kong' ensues.
