Blood On The Flat Track: The Rise Of The Rat City Rollergirls
Blood on the Flat Track focuses on the Rat City Rollergirls of Seattle, who formed their league from scratch in April of 2004. This documentary follows the teams throughout their first two seasons, shining a spotlight on the women who comprise the league, their struggle to win the championship bout and their relationships with each other. Armed with many of the league's best players, the Derby Liberation Front (DLF) upsets the undefeated Throttle Rockets at the 2005 Championships. Captain Lorna Boom is pregnant and unable to skate but Diva State, Burnett Down, Kitty Kamikaze, and D-Bomb band together to lead the team to victory. In addition to their regular season, the league creates an "All-Star" team to compete nationally against other leagues. Top athletes from DLF, the Sockit Wenches, the Throttle Rockets and Grave Danger start skating with, not against, each other with hopes of winning a national title. They discover that the team to beat is the Texas Rollergirls and travel to Tucson to try to defeat the best league in the country.
