In Mexico City—population nine million, but with only 45 government-sanctioned ambulances—the Ochoa family struggles to make a living as ragtag private paramedics. Racing against cutthroat competition to be the first to respond to patients in need of urgent help, hardworking Fer and his young sons increasingly face ethical dilemmas in their harrowing profession. Director Luke Lorentzen brings the audience on a thrilling ride-along.
