This 1992 documentary chronicles the international effort to put out fires that quickly consumed Kuwait's oil infrastructure after Saddam Hussein ordered rigs and oil reserves to be set ablaze. The film gives an interesting, atypical look at the Persian Gulf War by focusing not on the Hussein regime so much as the firefighters themselves and the innovative techniques they employed. With invaluable oil reserves quickly going up in smoke, and that smoke causing massive air pollution issues for the surrounding areas, firefighters race against the clock to contain an environmental disaster while maintaining as much of the precious black gold intact as possible.
