    Night of Fire

    It began with a spark...A house is burning. 

    Its six tenants include a failed priest, a naturalist, a neurosurgeon and a photographer. 

    Their landlord's relationship to them is both intimate and shadowy. At times he shares their obsessions and memories. He will also share their fate. 

    The passions of these individuals reach beyond the dying house that holds them. 

    One recalls a lonely childhood, another the cremation grounds of India, another an African refugee camp. 

    But will their stories be consumed forever by the flames?
