The film centers around a fragile balance that exists between humankind and the demons who secretly live among them, and the crisis for all when this balance is broken. Shum plays an abusive alcoholic boyfriend, who suddenly transforms into a caring loving person, along with the rest of the humans in this seedy tenement building. Dependent on human misery for survival, the demons in the building begin to starve.
Fire City: The Interpreter of Signs is an independent feature film. Additional content can be found at www.FireCity.com including a digital download of the comic book, and the short film Fire City: King of Miseries.
