CBCA Notables 2023. Fred is a star jammer in roller derby – Fred or Dead on the track, she doesn’t mind that her small family, herself, her mum and dad, are always moving. She has them, and she has roller derby. That’s all she needs. But now it’s all fallen apart and she can’t imagine ever putting the skates on again. Now road tripping with her dad to Melbourne, Fred meets a lot of people who all think they know what’s best for her. What do you do when the one thing that could save you is what hurts the most? Highly Recommended.
