This film, shot for the COI on behalf of the Department for Communities and Local Government, is a hard hitting reminder to keep our smoke alarms checked regularly to prevent tragedies from occuring.
Combining twin narratives the film chillingly brings home the devastation that smoke and fire can have on a domestic home.
Hearing the effects delivered by a pathologist in a mortuary whilst also seeing the family that’s been affected by this terrible event really brings home how important it is to check your smoke alarm frequently.
