A magnitude 7 earthquake shook Haiti on January 12, 2010, reducing the poorest country in America to rubble. Immediately rescue teams from all over the world came to the island to search for the citizens trapped below the rubble in a fight against the clock. A team of Spanish firefighters, accompanied by the rescue dog “Turco” became the protagonists of one of the most media rescue: two years old Redjeson was found a life 48 hours after the earthquake, becoming a symbol of hope. But their mission in Haiti changed their life forever. One year after the tragedy, three Spanish firefighters decide to return to search for Redjeson and to try to get their wounds to heal.
