When 14-year-old Troy's parents leave him in charge overnight, he has no idea his life in Paradise is about to change. He wakes to see a monstrous wildfire racing toward his home. Unable to reach his parents, and with a kid sister, a dog, and a cat to protect, he knows he has to act. How can he get them all to safety? They'll never be able to outrun the fire on foot. He has to make a decision, fast. Does he have what it takes to escape?
