Sink your teeth in their necks! Draw Blood! is the rallying cry of the Roosevelt Roughriders girls' basketball team. Imagining themselves as a pack of wolves, the girls tear into opposing teams and stand together as warriors both on and off the court. When Seattle filmmaker Ward Serrill met Bill Resler, a college tax professor who moonlights as a girls' basketball coach, he didn't realize that he was about to embark on an incredible seven-year journey. Serrill, camera in hand, followed Resler - who looks more like Santa Claus in Birkenstocks than a whistle-blasting high school coach - into the Roosevelt High School gym and soon discovered a group of girls whose unbridled toughness, passion and energy he came to call The Heart of the Game. Then, one day, onto the Roughriders' court walked Darnellia Russell - a tough, inner-city girl whose off-court struggles would eventually threaten to crash the star athelete's plans to play college ball and be the first person in her family to get a college education.
