Based on the real events in Tianjin 2015, a tribute to the heroic Firefighters who gave their lives.
In a race against time, firefighters risk their lives to control the catastrophic oil pipeline fire that can escalate into a destructive magnitude greater than an atomic bomb. With the city in total chaos, people are fighting to leave the city in order to save their own lives. Jiang Liwei's wife and son prepare to leave the city, but in the chaos, his son is separated from his wife.
At the same time, Jiang Liwei is struggling to erase the past where everyone blames him for another's death. He just wants to be a hero in everyone's eyes, especially in the eyes of his son. In his efforts to save the city from destruction, he risks life and limb to save everyone and loses his own life.
'Although the film was in Mandarin, it provided accurate English subtitles as well as Chinese subs. I read the English subs the entire movie, but never missed any of the those great explosions or other action packed scenes.
