Unlikely Hero – Comedy-Drama about Firefighters

$5.50

Life for Mike Donner was about as normal as one could expect for a firefighter at a busy Miami station. Cooking, pulling pranks, and copious amounts of coffee were all part of the daily routine. But then someone walked into the station that wasn’t part of Mike’s daily routine: his ex-girlfriend, Renee in this comedy drama about firefighters.

At first, things are tense, especially for a fire station in 1975, when women firefighters weren’t part of the norm. Mike and Renee’s constant bickering becomes too much for the Captain, who
puts Renee on engine duty until she and Mike can prove they can work together. But priorities become a lot clearer when Mike, Renee, and coworkers Porter, Joe, Mandy, and Watchman,
confront a raging fire at a paint store.
