BEFORE THE FIRE Coming to VC+Digital 8/14 from Dark Sky Films


As a global pandemic engulfs Los Angeles, rising TV star Ava Boone (SAG Award nominee Jenna Lyng Adams) is forced to flee the mounting chaos and return to her rural hometown. As she struggles to acclimate to a way of life she left behind long ago, her homecoming attracts a dangerous figure from her past – threatening both her and the family that serves as her only sanctuary.

Brimming with tension and paranoia, and featuring a tough-as-nails performance from its lead actress, the pre-apocalyptic road movie BEFORE THE FIRE is a shockingly timely tale of the strength of the human spirit against seemingly insurmountable odds.

Written by: Jenna Lyng Adams; Directed by: Charlie Buhler; Distributor: Dark Sky Films; Cast: Jenna Lyng Adams (Netflix’s The Kominsky Method, Uncle John), Jackson Davis (Vida, Shameless, The Basement); Ryan Vigilant (Naked as We Came, Lenox Avenue); Charles Hubbell (The Lumber Baron, The Midnight Chronicles, Walking with the Enemy)

“[BEFORE THE FIRE] is about trauma, family dynamics, fear, betrayal and power. It will pull you in from the very first moments and not let up until the credits.” – ALLIANCE OF FEMALE FILM JOURNALISTS

“BEFORE THE FIRE couldn’t be more timely, giving audiences a chance to ponder who they want to be versus who they will be if things get worse.” – FANBOY PLANET
