Paramedics Dean and Eric are both facing long hours, tough situations, and low pay. When they get a 911 call that leads them to discover a million dollars on a dying man, erratic Dean persuades reluctant Eric to keep the money. When their colleagues (the dangerously seductive Brie and the temperamental fireman Max) learn of the matter, things grow even more complicated as internal greed, betrayal, and double crosses ensue. Making matters all the worse are a committed detective and two zealous cops hot on the trail of the missing loot. Last but not least, eccentric but ruthless hitman Craddock sets out to retrieve the stolen goods, at first for his employer, then decides he’d rather have it for himself. As twists, turns, and mayhem increase, Dean and Eric soon discover that in the emergency call business, life or death situations are only one call away.
