Rescate is a gritty documentary about the heroics of the Rescate Ambar volunteer Paramedics and their leader Reynaldo Ortiz as they rush to provide medical attention to the countless number of motor vehicle accidents in the Dominican.  Rampant drunk-driving, perilous roadways have led the Dominican Republic to be ranked as one of the most dangerous countries to drive in the world. With zero government funding and only donated equipment, the Rescate Ambar team is a ragtag group who must fend for themselves as they rescue and protect the entire north coast of the Dominican.
