Description: Delving into the world of the art/sport of extreme luggaging, the film spans three decades as we focus on the story of two great pairs of rivals. Duane ‘destructo’ Docherty and his great rival Dale ‘silver surfer’ Phillips are playboy luggaging stars of the 70’s. Ritchie ‘the badger’ Miller and his roughneck nemesis ‘The Cobra’ are contemporary exponents of the luggaging lifestyle. Although separated by 3 decades the destiny of the characters becomes increasingly intertwined. Through the use of documentary techniques and flashback, the film focuses on the luggagers’ almost fanatical rivalry as they ultimately seek to outdo each other in an epic luggaging race.

Subtitled "Grip It & Rip It". 'Mockumentary' style.

Credits: UK Film Council and Glasgow Media Access Centre present A Little Pictures Production in association with Scottish Screen
