Academy Award-nominated stars Joaquin Pheonix (Best Supporting Actor, Gladiator 2000) and John Travolta (Best Actor, Pulp Fiction, 1994) ignite the intense action in this heroic tale of ordinary men with uncommon courage! As part of a tightly knit brotherhood of skilled firefighters, Jack Morrison (Phoenix) grows from inexperienced rookie to seasoned veteran as he faces a dangerous job that makes him a hero to strangers but often shortchanges his wife (Jacinda Barrett - The Human Stain) and kids. Then, when he becomes trapped in the worst blaze of his career, the things Jack holds most important-family, duty, courage-come sharply into focus.
