CGiii Comment

If the emergency services were really like this...life would be a whole lot safer!!!

Anyway...this little film is loaded with back stories [and subtext] that you just want to get to know!

It's clever, it's a little silly...and, it does deliver a subtle emotional wallop.

Quite lovely.
