It is hard to be angry or sad when you are on wheels, and that is exactly how Elisabeth rolls when she plays the aggressive contact sport Roller Derby. Through this sport Elisabeth has found something she has been missing in her life; a place with the freedom to be herself and the tomboy she has always been. Elisabeth has decided to share all of this with other women in Beirut to start a Roller Derby team, but Beirut it is not a place that women play physically rough sports on roller skates.
