Tracey Gold plays a woman incarcerated for manslaughter -wrongly so -who while in prison volunteers for smoke jumper training and despite brushes with the hard -nosed trainer rises to become the leader of a smoke jumper team .This is sent into action to combat a conflagration in which her estranged 10 year old daughter is caught .Can she douse the fire ,hold together her squabbling team and rebuild her relationship with the daughter ? These are the key questions in the movie and they are resolved in the way you would expect .
Budgetary constraints lead to overly obvious use of stock footage which is at least consisitent with the stock characters as portrayed in the teleplay .The acting is consistent with the standard expected of the telemovie-in short competent but not striking -and if you can ignore the low budget and lack of any originality this is okay as a time passer
