Tal van Vlaamse ambulanciers, spoedverpleegkundigen en spoedartsen vertellen over hun meest memorabele interventies, variërend van hilarische verhalen over opgestoken komkommers en vechtende foorkramers, tot aangrijpende getuigenissen over jonge meisjes die onder de trein springen of verongelukken op de dag van hun eerste communie. De kolder is leuk om thuis te vertellen, maar hoe verwerk je de confrontatie met een jongen die zichzelf gedood heeft, of vijf verkeersdoden in één dag? Er is al een lange weg afgelegd in het omgaan met zware interventies, maar elk nieuwe drama moet toch nog steeds verwerkt worden, terwijl er dikwijls nog te weinig waardering is voor het zware werk van de hulpverleners.
