Blood Road follows the journey of ultra-endurance mountain bike athelete Rebecca Rusch and her Vietnamese riding partner, Huyen Nguyen, as the pedal 1,200 miles along the Ho Chi Minh Trail through the dense jungles of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. Their goal: to reach the site where Rebecca’s father, a U.S. pilot, was shot down in Laos more than 40 years earlier. During this poignant voyage of self-discovery, the women push their bodies to the limit while learning more about the historic ‘Blood Road’ and how the Vietnamese War shaped their lives in different ways.
