In City on Fire, an NYU student is shot in Central Park on the Fourth of July, 2003. Samantha is alone; there are no witnesses and very little physical evidence. Her friends’ band is playing at her favorite downtown club but she leaves to meet someone, promising to return. She never does. As the crime against Samantha is investigated, she’s revealed to be the crucial connection between a series of mysterious citywide fires, the downtown music scene, and a wealthy uptown real estate family fraying under the strain of the many secrets they keep.

A music-driven tale and family saga, City on Fire stars Chase Sui Wonders as Samantha and Wyatt Oleff as Charlie, a friend of Samantha's who is struggling to cope with the death of his father on 9/11 two years earlier.
