Desperate people, desperate situations. In dark spaces, Snyder explores the decisions made – and the irreversible actions taken – when the walls close, when the knuckles are white and the teeth bare. During their time in a women’s prison, four fearless inmates undertook the intense work of fighting fires under the direction of their captain, Ruby. When the opportunity presents itself during an intense forest fire, this team of badass women decides to seize it, together.
