November 19 2009, 3:39pm

By founding the World Rock Paper Scissors Society, Graham and Douglas Walker hoped to promote Rock Paper Scissors as a fun and safe way to resolve disputes as well as a competitive sport. However, when thousands of RPS fanatics converge on the World RPS Championships, they're caught between big business, talk show pundits, Playmate mascots, and a battle of good versus evil that asks the question: Can purity beat commerce? "Rock Paper Scissors: A Geek Odyssey" dives headfirst into an extreme subculture and tracks the evolution of RPS into a legitimate sport of skill and strategy, worthy of training and competition, culminating with the World RPS Championships. It is an intimate look at some fascinating people who have devoted themselves to this game and turned it into a world of their own. Cast: IndiePix
