An elite crew trained to combat the most challenging wildfires, the Granite Mountain Hotshots were a ragtag family, crisscrossing the American West and wherever else the fires took them. The Hotshots were loyal to one another and dedicated to the tough job they had. We see this band of brothers at work, at play and at home, until a fire that burned in their own backyards leads to a national tragedy.
