Shot on location in Kuwait after the country's liberation in 1991, Fires of Kuwait is an eloquent visual testimony to the remarkable resourcefulness and heroism of the men and women who extinguished and controlled over 600 burning and gushing oil wells sabotaged by retreating Iraqi troops in the aftermath of the Gulf War. Following a number of teams as they attack and extinguish oil well fires using different techniques, the film takes the audience to the very centre of blazing fields of oil fires, shoulder-to-shoulder with the fire fighters.
