Much of El Salvador is gripped by gang violence. Turf is divvied up between two warring gangs. Children as young as eight are recruited. Many see no choice in life but to join and take up a life of crime. But some ex-gang members and youth find refuge with a volunteer ambulance corps called the ‘Rescue Commandos’. To save lives, these dauntless paramedics brave neighbourhoods where even the police won’t go.
This is a game in which the stake is human life. These people play with death. While the grim reaper stands at the head of the dying person’s bed, waiting for their final breath, volunteers from the Dutch “Ambulance Wish Foundation” arrive. They are prepared to fulfil any last wish of the patient. Completely free of charge!
