A character-driven, action-packed documentary about Detroit, told through the eyes of the Detroit firefighters, the men and women charged with the thankless task of saving a city that many have written off as dead.

This movie is as real as it gets, no actors, no scripts, just just real firefighters doing there jobs and saving lives with so much against them. A year following the hero's of the Detroit fire department. It is filmed on the front lines so you are seeing what they see and the danger they put them selves in every day. So hard to watch these firefighters put there lives in danger every day with outdated equipment in a city with so many abandoned homes and buildings for so little pay. It is so sad to see what has happened to this once great American city. I would highly recommend watching this movie, and have a respect for firefighters and what they live with every day.

The Real Deal
This is the real deal, makes you feel like your on the truck and on the scene. You can't get Hollywood with this, this is the real thing, it's got heat and action all over it. IT's amazing what these guys do , with so little. It truly is a passion that we take for granted.
If you haven't been to a fire scene this will take you to one. Amazing characters that aren't fiction, you will find a kindred spirit with the crew.
It's well done, with great editing, powerful images, this is a must see. If you like Back draft this will be up a definite in your collection. But no Hollywood here, again THE REAL DEAL.

What an eye opener!
So I'll say from the outset that I've got over 15 years with the emergency services, but not a fire department.
This documentary was incredibly well done!
The footage was amazing- if you wanna see a fire from a firefighters perspective, with no holds barred action, then this is for you!
Being non American, I know literally nothing about Detroit. I had heard via the news that they were in a financial mess, so this was a real eye opener. A sad state of affairs when essential services such as fire and police have no money to perform their job.
No money for PPE, equipment and truck repairs is a sad, sad state of affairs that everyone needs to see to believe and then make an issue out of.
It'd be great to see a follow up in a year or so to see the difference....
