Summary:
A disturbingly realistic film about a fire in a high-rise hospital. This program pulls no punches and has never dated. The issues remain the same. Designed to blast through the complacency of 'it can't happen here' attitude, the docu-drama vividly portrays a series of credible events that could easily happen in a hospital, large nursing home or any high-rise complex. This film shows the terrifying speed with which flames and smoke can engulf a building and the difficulties of evacuating the seriously ill and incapacitated, especially at night with a skeleton staff and when visibility is low. The consequences are disastrous in this drama - it need not be that way.
