1h 18min · Documentary · 1 September 2015
Andalusia. Summer. One of the world's worst places to fight a fire, where temperatures up to 45º meet with vast vegetation. To fight them, there is a special organization, an elite group, the tackles fires in a way that is unique in the world: direct attack. This group is called BRICA. A helicopter transports them to the front line of the fire and, armed only with chainsaws, axes courage, they fight flames that are 50 meters high. Through three of its members - Gustavo, the leader; Abarca, the veteran about to retire; and "Curiño", the rookie who has just joined the group- we see their day to day lives. Between fire and forest, only them.
