Excellent - Inspiring, Emotional
15 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Detroit needs our help. This is a must-see real life documentary that takes you into a local Detroit Fire Station for an entire year. You will also be taken right into actual fires throughout the city. Although it focuses only on Detroit, similar fire departments across the country are going through the same thing. If you are a firefighter, know a firefighter, or you just want to see an emotional, informative, funny, inspiring documentary then you must see this. Well worth it, I have seen it twice already. Although it is not a lot of theaters across the country, check their website because they are usually in a different town certain days. If you haven't seen it already I highly recommend it.
