Scary, stirring and stunning. Very informational and a true tribute to the people who serve others.
Definitely recommend. Beautifully shot -- would be great to see more of the personalities and stories of the snow patrol as the film morphs from the Guardians into the story of skiers who were unfortunately victims of an avalanche.
Wow, stunning. Fantastic to see a film about the great work these guys (and girls) do. Extraordinary stuff.
