As a global pandemic engulfs Los Angeles, rising TV star Ava Boone is forced to flee the mounting chaos and return to her rural hometown. As she struggles to acclimate to a way of life she left behind long ago, her homecoming attracts a dangerous figure from her past- threatening both her and the family that serves as her only sanctuary.
Brimming with tension and paranoia, and featuring a tough-as-nails performance from its lead actress, the pre-apocalyptic road movie Before the Fire is a shockingly timely tale of the strength of the human spirit against seemingly insurmountable odds.
“BEFORE THE FIRE IS ABOUT TRAUMA, FAMILY DYNAMICS, FEAR, BETRAYAL AND POWER. IT WILL PULL YOU IN FROM THE VERY FIRST MOMENTS AND NOT LET UP UNTIL THE CREDITS.”
– ALLIANCE OF FEMALE FILM JOURNALISTS
“BEFORE THE FIRE COULDN’T BE MORE TIMELY, GIVING AUDIENCES A CHANCE TO PONDER WHO THEY WANT TO BE VERSUS WHO THEY WILL BE IF THINGS GET WORSE.”
– FANBOY PLANET
