Synopsis

In Mexico City, there are fewer than 45 government-run ambulances to serve the city’s population of 9 million. Filling the void are family-run private ambulances, who race to the scene of an accident or a crime while also dodging police shakedowns, cutthroat competitors, and standstill traffic. Arguably one the most exhilarating documentary to come out this year, Midnight Family follows the Ochoa family at intensely close range. As the Ochoas try to make a living in this fraught industry, they struggle to keep their dire finances from compromising the people in their care.
