Sometimes those who live the shortest lives teach us the most. A little boy with leukemia has one wish, to become a firefighter. His wish leads him to cross paths with Captain Sam McClain, a hardened Fire Chief with a past that he struggles to put behind him. Through meeting Ethan and his raw enthusiasm for life in spite of his illness, Sam finds the courage to confront his past and find redemption.
