Rolling Through Life shares the portraits and stories of seniors who express themselves physically, creatively, and competitively through the art of Artistic Roller Skating.

The sport was a booming pastime in the 1970s, however, 90% of US roller rinks have since closed down. This group, ages 65 years and older, are among the few characters that play a major role in keeping the sport alive.
