Afire is a German romantic comedy-drama film directed by Christian Petzold. In the plot, in a small holiday home on the Baltic Sea, where the days are warm and it hasn’t rained for weeks, four young people meet again, old and new friends. The dry forests around them begin to catch fire badly, as do their emotions: happiness, lust and love, but also jealousy, resentment and tension – gradually, they too are surrounded by flames. Throughout this process, people also end up getting closer to each other at home. Until fires can no longer be ignored.
