Had the opportunity to see this film at The 2012 Sedona International Film Festival. While it started off a bit slow, the story follows eight women who broke taboos to become firefighters in their region. We get to see inside their lives and the relationships they develop as individuals, and as a whole, including that with their community. It is filmed in Northern Arizona, which itself, lends a beautiful cinematography. You cant help but root for these women as they often show the guys just how it's done. Makes for a great family film, and while unrated, it most likely would qualify for a PG-rating. While not currently available on DVD, search it out as a worthwhile viewing experience.
