Storyline

This powerful documentary takes viewers deep into the gritty streets of Bed-Stuy with a group of modern-day heroes from the Bedford-Stuyvesant Volunteer Ambulance Corps (BSVAC).

Always first on the scene, they transport anyone who needs their help to the hospital. But the ambulance corp has fallen on ... Written by Anonymous
