Synopsis

In 2003, 35-year-old family man Steve Wiebe, after losing his job at Boeing, found solace in Donkey Kong. He began perfecting his game every night after his wife and kids went to bed, and not only surpassed Billy Mitchell ("Gamer of the Century" and Donkey Kong Champion), but ended up with a thought-to-be-impossible 1,000,000 points. In the months that followed, Steve and Billy engaged in a cross-country duel to see who could set the high score that would be included in the 2007 Guinness World Records' book and become "The King of Kong." Along the way, both men learned valuable lessons about what it means to be a father, a husband, and a true champion--discovering that you don't always need to win to be a winner.
