Blues Sisters' is the compelling inside story behind the Dublin Ladies Football team's quest to win the All Ireland Final.
Loosehorse's cameras were given access to all areas - from gruelling training sessions, to dressing-downs in the dressing room and all of the tactical team talks in between, to give the viewers a unique behind-the-scenes insight into what it takes to make a team the best in the country.
The documentary follows the ladies' journey throughout the entire summer, from their Leinster semi-final win to their day of reckoning in Croke Park. With a new manager, Mick Bohan, by their side and a string of devastating defeats in recent years, both the team and management started the season with a point to prove and we follow the ups and downs of this journey along the way.
The audience gets a chance to see the players beyond the blue as the programme offers a window into their lives: the dedication that it takes to be a county player and what drives them to sacrifice so much of their personal lives for the love of the game.
Pat Comer, director of A Year 'Til Sunday, once again captures the journey of a team on their way to win the ultimate goal.
