A shocking but untold piece of American urban history, filmmakers Gretchen Hildebran and Vivian Vásquez chronicle a series of South Bronx fires that raged throughout the 1970s. Left unprotected by the city government, nearly a quarter-million people were displaced as their close-knit, multiethnic neighborhood burned to the ground.
