Into the Fire
Firefighter Dan Foley and office worker Tara Murphy die in each other’s arms on 9-11. Into the Fire is a fictional account of interlocking lives that traces Dan and Tara’s slowly converging personal stories. Like the towers in which they perish, their lives and histories are mirror images – each one analogous to the other, both are tainted by the struggles of their parents and the trials of their childhood, but like the great city around them, both are survivors. They create new lives, imperfect yes, that confound their beginnings. For all their isolation, in their final moments they experience real love, maybe for the very first time. They are lost forever, but lost together.
