The documentary 'In the Blood' portrays the struggles and triumphs of a lower division soccer team and its dedicated community of supporters in working class England. As Brentford Football Club's season builds to a final match of huge implications for its future, the town of Brentford itself confronts political and economic realities which threaten its very identity, anchored in its century-old soccer stadium. When several die-hard fans decide that the only way to save their beloved team is to upend the Labour Party's grip on local government and mount their own campaign for office, they demonstrate the depth of passion for a local team and for a sense of community: it's in the blood.
