When Tom Meyer (Jason London) escapes his dreary smalltown life for a job in LA as a paramedic, he is teamed with ace ambulance driver Jimmy (Todd Field). Jimmy shows Tommy how to use their equipment creatively, score freebies from drug dealers, and enjoy favoritism from the police. Eventually, the pair lose themselves in the world of violence and drugs that they usually save people from.
