FOUR NIGHTS AND A FIRE revolves around an Ojibwe ceremony performed upon death of a loved one, where the spirit of a recently departed makes a four-day journey to the afterlife and must overcome temptations along the way. Robert prepares for a sacred fire ceremony in the woods that his father used to hunt in, desperate to feel close to him one last time. Meanwhile, the spirit of his father finds the flame and seeks to console his son, though he is only able to watch, and grieves that he cannot comfort him. As Robert fights to keep the flame alive, the spirit fights his fear of the inevitable transition to the afterlife.
