Summary: Surrounded by the injured and the dying, EMS paramedic Frank (Cage) is dwelling in an urban night-world, crumbling under the accumulated weight of too many years of saving and losing lives. The film follows Frank over the course of fifty-six hours in his life - two days and three nights on the job - as he reaches the very brink of spiritual collapse and redemption. (Paramount Pictures)
