"With a population of close to nine million, Mexico City has only 45 state-funded ambulances to serve in emergencies. Meet the Ochoa family, who, like many, run a for-profit ambulance service to meet the public's needs when the state falls short. They spend their sleepless nights scanning police radios and competing to be the first responder to emergency calls in the city's wealthiest neighbourhoods. But it's not all altruistic. This is, after all, a quasi-legal business—bills must be paid, police must be bribed—and the Ochoas often find themselves in complicated moral dilemmas, forced to barter with patients in an attempt to balance their books with their own ethical standard of care. Midnight Family is an immersive, white-knuckle ride through the shocking failures of a broken health care system."
