When a volunteer firefighter drives his car into almost certain death, during the worst fires in Australian history, he does it because he ‘has a job to do’. Three months later, the fires are out, but his fight is just beginning. Turning a sensitive lens on the unprecedented devastation of Australia’s 2019/2020 ‘Black Summer’ bushfires from a country-wide emergency to the astonishing stories of help that emerged, A FIRE INSIDE presents an inspirational look at the way people respond to crisis and its true impact on the human spirit.
