  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
In 1982 BIlly Mitchell scored 874,300 points on the arcade video game Donkey Kong, the highest score ever recorded, making him The undisputed King Of Kong. Twenty years later, armed with a Fistful Of Quarters, rival gamer Steve Wiebe shatters what is thought to be Mitchell's unbreakable record with a whopping 1,000,000 points. In the months following the feat, Billy and Steve engage in a cross-country gamer's duel, filled with publicity and frustration, to determine who is king of Donkey Kong. (Stacey Pendry)
