Bliss Cavendar is the shy and quiet daughter of an overbearing mother who is obsessed with enrolling her in beauty pageants, which she hates. As the 17-year-old small-town Texas girl attempts to carve out her own unique identity, she stumbles upon something that she actually does love to do. This activity is the roller derby; she never tried it before, but now she realizes that she has a natural aptitude for it. Bliss decides to spend as much of her time as she can honing her new skill, but she doesn't want her parents to find out about it. Hence, she has to make up stories about her whereabouts when she's at the derby while also trying to deal with her very first romantic crush.
