Mexico City has fewer than 45 official ambulances serving nine million people... Luke Lorentzen's adrenalised documentary focuses on one of the private teams that fill the gap.

Packed with tense moments and disturbing shots that, without compromising the clients' privacy, hint at the unhappiness just offscreen.

Fast paced, action packed. An intimate portrait of the human costs of Mexico's healthcare crisis.

Much of the film plays like a madly adrenal action movie.

Were it not for the real tragedy and horror involved, this documentary could almost be filed under the bleakest and often hilarious kind of black comedy.
