Storyline

The incarcerated girls and young women come from troubled - often violent - backgrounds. According to DJ, "They come in [here] so broken...These are girls who've been abused and objectified their whole lives." The film illustrates how many of the young women achieve salvation through joining an elite band of volunteers tasked with battling forest fires, building hiking trails in remote areas and assisting during natural disasters. The volunteers have to survive several weeks of rigorous training, be in peak physical condition and have to learn how to work as a team, often in life-threatening situations. DJ says that he developed the volunteer force "because I wanted to change the way these girls see themselves. To feel strong. To see other people respecting their strength."In the words of Cuba Gooding Jr., "These women fought to save lives. They ended up saving their own." Written by ABC Media Relations

good sincere heart warming
31 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

DJ (Cuba Gooding Jr.) is a counselor who is trying to save some of girls at the youth correctional facility. He leads a group of girls volunteering to battle wildfires. The girls each have their own problems that they working through while some have problems with other girls in the facility.

The confrontations and the atmosphere inside are all well done. The acting is very good especially Q'orianka Kilcher (The New World) and DeWanda Wise. This is a very sincere Hallmark Hall of Fame TV movie. It does get into slow melodrama territory sometimes.
