The tape follows the participants in a carnival show performing their act called The Wall of Death. The riders operate motorcycles and go-carts on a vertical wall. The tape follows them through one complete show. It starts with the least knowledgeable and least skilled showmen and works up to the best. The star of the show is a woman. She out-performs everyone and stands alone in what is generally thought of as a man's game. Changing roles in a changing society.
