This powerful documentary, showcased in Boise for the first time Saturday, Aug. 5 at the Egyptian Theater, chronicles the journey of mountain biker Rebecca Rusch, nicknamed "The Queen of Pain" for her remarkable feats of endurance, as she travels her most painful road yet—through an ex-war zone and her own past.

In 2015, Rusch and her guide, Huyen Nguyen, set off on their bikes for a trip that would take them 1,200 miles across Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam in search of the spot where Rusch's father was killed when his plane went down during the Vietnam War. The path they followed was the Ho Chi Minh trail, or "Blood Road."

Filled with stunning scenery, deep cultural connections and real characters who are both vulnerable and strong, Blood Road promises to be a striking, must-see film.
