Tackles one of the most pressing issues of our time: how can we save our badly broken healthcare system? Director/Producers Matthew Heineman (OUR TIME) and award-winning Susan Froemke (WAGNER'S DREAM, LALEE'S KIN: THE LEGACY OF COTTON) interweave dramatic personal arcs of patients and physicians with the stories of leaders battling to transform healthcare at the highest levels of medicine, industry, government, and even the U.S. military. ESCAPE FIRE is about finding a way out of our current crisis. It's a primer on how to save the health of a nation.
