Only the Brave

It’s Not What Stands In Front Of You, It’s Who Stands Beside You.


Only the Brave
Based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, this is the heroic story of one unit of local fire-fighters that through hope, determination, sacrifice, and the drive to protect families, communities, and America, become one of the most elite fire-fighting teams in the country. As most of us run from danger, they run toward it - they watch over lives, homes, everything precious, as they forge a unique brotherhood that comes into focus with one fateful fire.
