Down and Derby Plot: What's the story?

"Down and Derby" is a comedy about a small-town Pinewood Derby competition that transforms an average group of dads into an awkward bunch of competitors. The film exposes the desperate behavior of parents who compete with one another through their children—a social dynamic seen in everyday activities ranging from Little League to science fairs to pageantry. In the crazed world of derby fever, kids are lucky if they get to pick the paint color or attach a decal. Hilarity builds as dads teeter on the edge of insanity and resort to backstabbing, cover-ups and sabotage. They ignore wives, families and jobs with extreme consequences. Meanwhile, the kids scheme their revenge and vow never to be underestimated again. In the end, the story reaches comical and outrageous levels with a surprise twist that will have you on the edge of your seat!
