Heavy Rescue: 401


When winter hits, the Heavy Recovery operators of Southern Ontario fight to clear wrecks and keep drivers moving on the busiest stretch of highway in the world.  Sonny Subra came to Canada fleeing civil war – only to enter a different kind of battle on the pavement of the 401.  Brand new to the world of heavy rescue, Sonny fights to prove himself under the extreme pressure – and extreme dangers – of working on the highway.   But Sonny will have to snag the jobs before the competition. Veteran operators John Allen and James Ireland have years of experience clearing mangled metal.  And they’re more than ready for another season.  Three hundred kilometres to the west, Gary Vandenheuval is gearing up for another winter of lake effect storms that strike without warning. This year, his young son Collin is working his way toward running his own heavy truck.  But when tragedy strikes close to home, Gary must decide if Collin is ready to join the ranks.  As the rookies push to work their way up… winter is just getting started.
