The last days of summer. Sam meets up with her best friend Billy for a lazy afternoon in the sun and what begins as a perfectly innocent trip to their usual hangout soon changes its nature. Firewood is a story about friendship, of unspoken words, and the inevitability of change. It is a moment in time which in its brevity and seeming insignificance marks the end of an era, a step towards adulthood.
