Synopsis

On the morning of June 14, 2017, at a practice field for the annual Congressional Baseball Game, a man opened fire on the Republican team, wounding five -- including Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise nearly fatally.

Told with harrowing detail, Scalise's survival story is a minute-by-minute tribute to those who emerged in the minutes, hours, and days after he suffered a devastating gunshot wound in order to save his life and the lives of his friends.

Scalise delves into each hero's story, seeking to understand how everyone developed the knowledge, experience, and courage that ultimately saved his life. Rep. Brad Wenstrup, an Army Reserve officer and surgeon with Iraq combat experience, coordinated with police, paramedics, helicopter pilots, Scalise's security detail, and a trauma team to work miracles in a dire and frightening situation.

This is a gripping, heart-pounding, and ultimately hopeful story of the Americans who overcame their fears and differences in order to save lives -- and uplift one grateful man with assistance and prayer.
