Play with Fire an amazing feat in Canadian filmmaking" - Avante-Guardian Musings
"...feels more real than a mainstream, big budget film. This speaks to the film's incredible direction as well as its basis in reality. Out of the darkness of the film, the unusual beauty of Trail shone as a unifying force, giving the film a distinct personality." - The Cascade
"If you’re a fan of cinematography you need to see this film for the gorgeous exteriors. Filmed like a Merchant Ivory film, with practically no money. This is a gritty story that's beautiful to watch" -- RHIFF

Those who refuse change, have no choices. This is the heartbeat of a town.
‘Play with Fire’ follows the unsettling life of 28-year old Christian. Having never left his small town, he wastes his days with meaningless activities and selling drugs to get by. His girlfriend, Melody, encourages him to come to the city with her in order to start over with a clean slate. Just as she leaves, his longtime friend Joel comes back to town bringing with him a risky plan that will help him fatten his wallet. All Joel needs is Christian’s help. This is where a story of twisted loyalty, love and loss begins.
“Play with Fire” is authentic independent filmmaking. Using natural light, non-actors, and locations of the town, the lens captured something that was not only raw and visceral, but something beautiful; something that transcended its location and touched the audience. “Play with Fire” is the heartbeat of many towns.
