Midnight Family

USA, Mexico | 2019 | documentary | 81 min. World stories

The 9.5 million population of Mexico City is served by 45 state-owned ambulances only. Many residents decided to take matters into their own hands and created an alternative service of private medical transport. The Ochoa family from Mexico City has been living in constant readiness as they own an ambulance which is the only source of income for them. The film shows how parents and children go on a night ride to beat the competition and bring victims to the hospital. Each trip of this kind has an unpredictable scenario.
