It’s summer. Danny’s twelve, drifting into adolescence, just getting interested in girls, with no idea how to talk to them. He spends his days making mixtapes that he trades with his cousin Luca. At home, his parents are in constant conflict. Their almost nightly fights are like background noise. Danny finds himself caught between his parents with no clear path to his own life. Set over the course of a single week, “I’m on Fire” tells the story of a toxic marriage seen through the lens of a twelve-year-old boy, and the critical step he takes in his difficult path toward adulthood.
