SYNOPSIS

In a city where the government operates only 45 emergency ambulances for a population of over nine million, the Ochoa family acts as a crucial - but unregistered - underground lifeline. But the job is riddled with police bribes and cutthroat competition. And even though the Ochoa family has a reputation for being trustworthy, they must reckon with the sudden escalation in bribes that could force them to wade into the ethically questionable practice of making money off of patients in dire straits.
