Arson is a very difficult crime to track because it is usually done in secret, there are rarely any witnesses to the crime, and the evidence is almost always lost in the fire. While current statistics show that approximately 15 % of arson cases are committed by a serial arsonist, this percentage could actually be much higher. During a recent October, the suburban community of Seaville, California, just north of Los Angeles, has been experiencing the work of a serial arsonist, eight wildfires within the span of a month. Increasingly frustrated over the lack of forensic evidence that would provide any leads, Fire Chief, Richard Bradford, turns to Psychoanalyst, Dr. Roger Sterling, who suggests a rather revolutionary idea, that the arsonist can be tracked through the dynamics of the human mind. What begins as a journey of psychoanalytic research for Dr. Sterling, however, quickly turns into a journey of survival when he realizes that his own children are trapped in their home by a wildfire, and their nanny is lying motionless on the garage floor. Join a list of fascinating characters: Dingo, a homeless man suffering from psychosis, four runaway teenage girls (Beverly, Annie, Darlene, and Carla), Buddy, a revolving door psychiatric patient, Big Bad Bob, a former professional wrestler who now manages a local coffee shop, Mr. W., a compulsive gambler, Kyle, a jilted teenage boy, CB, Dr. Sterling’s colleague in Tennessee, Brad and Abby, Dr. Sterling’s two young children, and a lone character who roams the Seaville Valley at night, as the drama for survival unfolds in this community. Keep in mind that this is only the beginning. The yearly problem of wildfires in the Seaville Valley will soon be opening the door to deeper issues in this quiet, suburban community.
