Through behind-the-scenes footage and interviews conducted by award-winning actor Steve Buscemi - a former firefighter with Engine Company 55 in downtown Manhattan - this film touches on the personal journeys of several current and former firefighters while revisiting some of the FDNY's milestones, including the integration of women and people of color, the "War Years" of the '60s and '70s, the 1966 fire at Wonder Drug and the tragedy of 9/11 and its long-lasting impact on the FDNY. Directed and produced by Liz Garbus (HBO's Emmy(R)-nominated "Bobby Fischer Against the World") and produced by actor Steve Buscemi (Emmy(R) nominee for HBO's "Boardwalk Empire"), this hour-long documentary explores life in one of the most demanding and innovative fire departments in the world. A Good Job: Stories of the FDNY is a genuine, raw and emotional look at the sacrifices firefighters make, the challenges they face, and reveals why the FDNY family truly lasts forever.
