Heartbreak, loss, heroism, humanity and community. Inspired by true events, Fires tells the story of everyday Australians at the front line of the devastating fires of the 2019-2020 Australian summer.

It's New Year's Eve, and a usually picturesque holiday town looks like a war zone. As day turns to night and the sky turns blood-red, people rush to the water's edge for safety.
