Summary

Documentary focusing on the American football rivalry between two very different towns in Maine - Rumford, which is supported by a declining paper mill in the rugged western mountains, and the comparatively wealthy and affluent Cape Elizabeth, whose residents include many doctors and lawyers. As the towns' high schools go to battle on the football field, the programme reveals how their very different identities are defined against each other.
