We follow the inspiring players that make up one of Australia’s greatest ever sporting teams as they overcome their own daily battles and strive for the ultimate glory.

After losing the gold medal at the London Paralympics, the Aussie Rollers, are out for redemption at the Wheelchair Basketball World Championships in South Korea. But winning won’t be their greatest achievement.

Q&A session with filmmakers and lead talent

A Life of Fighting (7 mins)

Meet Jacob Marks, a man with a troubled past and a broken home. He found an outlet and a professional career in fighting – yet lost his passion for harming others. After years of travelling and being away from the sport, Jacob has found himself again by teaching the arts of Muay Thai and the meaning of fighting to others.

Stone Empire (5mins)

Stone Empire explores the Newcastle music scene by telling the story of Stone Empire, a Newcastle rock band. ‘Stone Empire’ looks to cast light upon the issues bands in Newcastle are facing as music moves from live bands to DJ’s and acoustic duos.


Q&A with the following:

Luke Pople – Aussie Rollers

Regarded as one of the premier young talents coming through the Australian Rollers program, Pople announced himself to the world in 2013, leading the Australian Spinners to bronze at the IWBF Under 23 World Championships.

This led to senior honours with the Rollers, earning a call-up to the team for the IWBF Asia-Oceania Zone Championships, where he helped the team qualify for the World Championships in South Korea.

There, Pople was a member of the Australian team as they went back-to-back at the World Champs while he has also earned success in the NWBL with the Wollongong Roller Hawks.

Becoming a key member of the Rollers, Pople again represented the green and gold in 2017, helping Australia qualify for the 2018 World Championships before making the team to compete at that tournament in Hamburg, Germany.
