A lot of people assume it’s a movie about Paul Rabil and it’s not. He just happens to be the guy — him and Mike — who try to change the narrative of the sport, change the professional game, and make it an elite-status type of sport

Michael Doneger
Director

You’ll see the last five years of us building the league, my journey at the tail end of my career — which, I always grew up thinking that if I would ever have the opportunity as an athlete to have a story [told], it would be around my best moments, not my worst — and one of my worst moments was in 2020, and that’s all captured. They’re definitely some raw moments in this film that I’m not proud of, but [I want to show] those moments because we all have them, and they’re the moments that spur the largest amount of growth

Paul Rabil
PLL Co-Founder & President

I’m hopeful that [the film] shines a light on that, on the building of a business and telling of a sport and that sport’s roots to the indigenous community
