Mexico City has 45 government operated emergency service vehicles to serve a population of approximately 9 million. That leaves a wide open market for private care, and this is the story of one such hospital wagon and the family that’s been in business for 20 years. They race to be the first on the scene to administer care, and more times than not, wind up getting stiffed for their services. On a bad night, they spend more money on gas and Fabulosa — the latter needed to to keep the back of the ambo smelling fresh. Seventeen-year-old Juan, he of the perfect hair and winning personality, repeatedly reminds the family that the ambulance feeds them. When he’s not manning the scanner, he’s calling up his girlfriend to recount that night’s exploits. At 81 minutes, you won’t be bored, but don’t be surprised if the car ride home finds you questioning how an audition reel for a reality television program earned a theatrical release.
