I don't understand when people say it doesn't have a plot
It's about a burnt out paramedic over the course of three shifts in early 90s NYC. How is that not a plot? And as for the random things that happen, if you've ever worked in healthcare you know you meet some very random people throughout the course of your day.
I get that people might not have liked the story but it has a story. The story is that of a burnt out paramedic on the job for a few nights and the people he encounters and works with.
