Drifting into adolescence, Danny’s interest in girls is growing, but he has no idea how to talk to them. At home, his parents are in constant conflict, sometimes it goes beyond yelling. Set over the course of a single week, “I’m on Fire” tells the story of a toxic marriage through the lens of a 12-year-old, and the critical steps he takes to confront the difficult path toward adulthood.

Advisory: graphic off-screen violence (abuse); strong language
