Storyline

The incarcerated girls and young women come from troubled - often violent - backgrounds. According to DJ, "They come in [here] so broken...These are girls who've been abused and objectified their whole lives." The film illustrates how many of the young women achieve salvation through joining an elite band of volunteers tasked with battling forest fires, building hiking trails in remote areas and assisting during natural disasters. The volunteers have to survive several weeks of rigorous training, be in peak physical condition and have to learn how to work as a team, often in life-threatening situations. DJ says that he developed the volunteer force "because I wanted to change the way these girls see themselves. To feel strong. To see other people respecting their strength."In the words of Cuba Gooding Jr., "These women fought to save lives. They ended up saving their own." Written by ABC Media Relations

Beautiful movie with a beautiful message
20 May 2012 | by tecnogamingSee all my reviews

Seeing all the big budget movies these days with almost no redeeming value whatsoever it's a delight to find a jewel like this just out of pure good fortune.

A movie made for TV, with Cuba Jr seemed at first a normal to mediocre movie about girls in a correctional facility, but what appeared to be a regular movie turn out to be wonderful because of the little details.

Cuba is great at showing as the good guy, this role suits him perfectly, it doesn't seem forced, the rest of the girls plays their part too, with impeccable acting. What stand out the most about this movie is it's kindness toward humanity, the good message that flows through the movie and don't come out forced, incredible so.

DeWanda Wise truly shines in this movie, it's character is by far the more complex in this movie, the direction and script also gave her a lot of freedom to express as a truly wonderful actress, the sad parts really made me cry and it's partly due to her wonderful work.

it's hard to find movies with a true heart these days, where violence and killing are glorified by Hollywood as trademarks of "entertainment". This movie is anti-violence on it's guts, beautifully shot, with very good timing and without being forced upon.

If you're in for a good movie about human mistakes and redemption (not religious) this movie IS for you.

Nicely done!

Now i'm thrilled, there is still plenty of good movies out there to watch and there is still good art to be found in the cinema industry.

A solid 8 out of 10.
