Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Discover the bizarre true story of bowling prodigy Bob Purzycki, who emerged as one of the bowling world's most promising young athletes until a debilitating eye injury threatened to cut short a once-promising career. With permanent vision loss in his left eye it seemed as if Purzycki had thrown his last strike, but through sheer willpower and determination he found his way back to the lanes, winning the Bowler of the Year award for two consecutive years straight starting in 1973. Later drifting in and out of jail after getting involved with the mafia, the persevering bowler bounced back to became a Super Bowl High Roller.
