However, when the alarm rings, they still have to pluck up and race against time to give first aid in each attendance. They have no idea that there are many unexpected events waiting for them. And put it even worse, press from the authorities and the public squeeze them to the bone, when a surge of internal contradiction surfaced, what should they do? “ASHES” describes the story of basic firemen in Taiwan.
