Bluray - Justice League Flashpoint

Brief Premise (as found on Wikipedia): While visiting his mother’s grave, Barry Allen, known as the Flash, is alerted to a break-in by Captain Cold, Captain Boomerang, Heat Wave, Mirror Master, and Top at the Flash Museum. Defeating the rogues, he discovers that they have been hired by his arch-enemy Professor Zoom as part of a plan to destroy Central City. With the help of the Justice League, Barry foils Zoom’s plot, but Zoom’s taunts over the death of his mother still haunt Barry as he departs. The next day, Barry discovers that the world has radically changed: his powers are gone, his mother is alive, his wife Iris is married to someone else, and the Justice League does not exist.

Obviously there will be some difference from the tales that we found in printed form because the film is only so long and this storyline spanned multiple titles and ran for a few months. You can dig into the finer points via the Wiki entry which I have added for your examination.
