Summary
The film is inspired by the NY Times Bestseller and Pulitzer Prize winner AFTER THE FIRE by Robin Fisher. AFTER THE FIRE chronicles the inspirational tale of two burn survivors after the tragic Seton Hall university fire and the dramatic search for the two arsonists. On January 19, 2000 Seton Hall University was vaulted to the national news when a fire set by arsonists, raced through a freshman dorm killing three students and injuring fifty eight others. The most critically burned survivors were fresmen roommates Shawn Simmons and Alvaro Llanos. Laying in a coma, Shawn and Alvaro were unaware that a journalist and photographer were documenting every event in their fight for survival. The story proceeds from the devastating fire through the grueling medical treatment until their return to the same school where their ordeal had begun. Pitted against the heroic efforts of firefighter, burn nurses and survivors, lies the story of the two arsonists. Running away after setting the deadly blaze, they conspire to obstruct the truth and hide away like cowards. As the determined investigators begin a dramatic and frustrating search for the arsonists, they uncover a vast conspiracy with ties to the local mafia. The Prosecutors end up cutting a deal with a former Lucchese mafia hitman, securing his early release from prison in return for his help in making a case against two students suspect in setting the fatal Seton Hall University fire. AFTER THE FIRE is the story of healing emotionally, physically and spiritually, and how communities come together in times of tragedy. AFTER THE FIRE also tells the personal story of how the two critically burned survivors Shawn and Alvaro travel together on their personal journey of forgiveness and resolve to live their best lives, despite the tragedy
