Haunted by the patients he failed to save, an extremely burned-out Manhattan ambulance paramedic fights to maintain his sanity over three fraught and turbulent nights.
The film is considered to be a remake of "Taxi Driver" also directed by Martin Scorsese.
Look up, Frank. Full moon. The blood's gonna run tonight. I can feel it. Our mission: to save lives.
Frank Pierce: Our mission is coffee, Tom. A shot of the bull, Puerto Rican espresso.
Tom Wall: Ten-four. El Toro de Oro! Blast off!
At the end of the movie we see an F.D.N.Y. Ambulance in the background. The story takes place in the early 1990s. In the early '90s, N.Y.C. E.M.S. was still under The Health and Hospitals Corporation of N.Y.C. The Fire Department did not take over E.M.S. until 1995, when Mayor Rudolph Guilliani saw that E.M.S. could supplement the income of F.D.N.Y.
