Synopsis

Burnt-out Manhattan paramedics deal with the pressure of their job with caustic wit and an acrid view of the world. However, seeing so many tragedies in the slums of NY City is taking its toll on Frank (Nicolas Cage). “Saving someone’s life is like being in love. It’s the best drug in the world,” he says. But the guilt of letting a young girl die is driving him to hallucinations, and about to send him over the edge.

Dove Review

Content Description

Much profanity and obscenity; violence, including beatings, a car crash and depictions of wounds; sexual innuendo and shots of scantily-clad prostitutes; smoking, drug and alcohol use; a graphic twin birth, with one of the babies born dead; intense hospital waiting room scenes; dead bodies; a bleak, depressing look at lost souls engulfed in poverty, ignorance and drug abuse; the hero is an alcoholic and gives into the temptation of drug use.
