A group of friends in a holiday home by the Baltic Sea where emotions run high as the parched forest around them catches fire.

The Story

Afire is set at a small holiday house by the Baltic Sea. The days are hot and it hasn’t rained in weeks. Four young people come together, friends old and new. As the parched forests around them begin to ignite, so do their emotions. Happiness, lust and love; but also jealousies, resentments and tensions. Meanwhile the forests burn. And before long, the flames are there.
