In The Other Side of the Hero, we’ll meet several first responders and their families, see daily life, laugh, and unwind with them. And we’ll talk about the experiences these first responders have had with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. We’ll also meet Vince Savoia, a former paramedic who, some 20 years ago, had to quit his job after a traumatic call that changed his life. He now runs the Tema Conter Memorial Trust (www.tema.ca).
Several actors who portray first responders on TV are also featured in the doc. These actors acknowledge the responsibility they have to inspire and inform audiences. As Paget Brewster from Criminal Minds notes, young women often tell her they want to do “exactly what she does on TV” as an FBI Profiler. When approached by fans who tell him they want to become a cop because of his show, Colantoni says, “You don’t want to be a cop, you want to be an actor!”
