Plot Synopsis

In 1980's Southern California, John Orr, a veteran arson investigator, is brought in to investigate a string of suspicious and deadly fires. His uncanny ability to pinpoint the point of origin of the fires earns him a measure of celebrity during the crisis. As he pursues the serial arsonist members of his own task force begin to suspect that he or another firefighter is setting the blazes. Evidence eventually proves Orr's quilt and he is sentenced to life in prison.
