In the early 1980s, legendary Billy Mitchell set a Donkey Kong record that stood for almost 25 years. This documentary follows the assault on the record by unemployed science teacher Steve Wiebe who wants to challenge him for the 2007 Guinness World Records. The film interviews the players, fans and referees who gather every year at the Funspot tournament and to whom Donkey Kong is so much more than just a game.
