In Detail

Fifteen-year-old Alan must grow up fast in order to help his mother and look after his two siblings when, with the family facing ruin, his father gives himself up to two-year indentured service.

While stoking the village’s all-important fire during the night, he will learn what it takes to survive and discover the true purpose of the bonfire’s ritualistic guardianship. This film often ravishes the eye thanks to the consistently lush photography.
