In one of Mexico City’s wealthiest neighborhoods, the Ochoa family operates a for-profit ambulance, competing with other private EMTs to help patients in need. In a city of almost 9 million, the government only operates 45 emergency ambulances, leaving businesses like that of the Ochoa family to serve as a crucial lifeline to those needing medical attention. However, the lack of financial gain from their operation often jeopardizes the quality of care the family can provide,and when the police crackdown on private ambulances the Ochoa family isthrown into a moral and ethical gray area. This observational documentary shows the urgent complexities surrounding healthcare, government authority, and communal responsibility.
