The Summer Games are just months away, and the top goalball athletes are in full beast mode.

Wait -- goalball?

Originally created to rehabilitate World War II veterans, goalball is a fast-paced, high-impact Paralympic sport for the visually impaired in which competitors must rely on sound and touch to win.

A new documentary, the aptly named Shot in the Dark, captures the down-and-dirty as U.S. athletes train for nationals. Don't miss the trailer -- it's equal parts captivating and moving.
