A pyrotechnician attempts to rekindle an old flame, and unwittingly sparks a new one.
As a professional pyrotechnician, DONNIE spends his life on the road, drifting between events. He revisits a town for the Fourth of July, and attempts to rekindle a flame with park ranger RORY. When she rejects Donnie's advance, Donnie meets ROSE, a fiery older woman, whose compassion reinvigorates his dashed spirits. As the night of the 4th closes in, Donnie finds himself torn between loves new and old.
