When three children are trapped in a second floor room by a fire, two teenage girls take matters into their own hands and a few firefighters are caught by surprise.
SHAR and Jax are emancipated minors with a lot of attitude. Both girls have been hurt in ways no one should, but they were taught, by a dying college professor, to be all that they could be, if only to annoy anyone who ever declared they were nothing but trouble.
Jax was a mid-life surprise born into a dysfunctional family. SHAR has no family still living, she also has no voice, and some believe she’s mute by choice, still she makes herself understood.
Working as stand in’s and low level stunt doubles in the film industry and any other odd job they can find to make ends meet, neither girl is willing to give up their independence but they are very dependent on each other.
Both girls have a questionable past and are under suspicion of arson. What is the truth? Where did they learn their unique style of fire fighting?
