In addition to Facinelli, ON FIRE is anchored by the exceptional talents of Asher Angel (Shazam! Fury of the Gods), Fiona Dourif (Chucky) and Golden Globe nominee Lance Henriksen (Aliens).

ON FIRE tells the story of an ordinary man thrown into extraordinary circumstances. Dave Laughlin (Facinelli) is a humble man who has spent his life working to be a great husband, father and son. Living in a remote area of Northern California, he finds his world suddenly and violently torn apart as devastating wildfires rip through the surrounding area. With precious moments ticking by, Laughlin must flee with his son (Angel) and pregnant wife (Dourif) if they have any hope of surviving the rapid forces of mother nature.

At its core, ON FIRE not only captivates with its compelling narrative, but it also delivers a profound message addressing pressing global climate concerns. The film poignantly tackles the urgent issue of the climate crisis while also paying homage to the unwavering courage and support of our fearless firefighters.
