We Burn Like This
When 22 year-old Rae (Madeleine Coghlan), a descendant of Holocaust survivors, is targeted by Neo-Nazis in Billings, Montana, her ancestors' trauma becomes real. Rae’s best friend Chrissy B. (Devery Jacobs) has a new boyfriend, and Rae, newly single, befriends an older man Wolf (Angelo Rizzo) who leads her on a downward spiral of substance abuse. After hitting a low, Rae returns home to her mother Maggie (Casidee Riley) and uncovers the truth about a childhood accident. As antisemitism continues to rise in the community of Billings, we follow Rae on her journey to forgive herself, her mother, and the broken world.
Inspired by true events, this coming-of-age story shows the inherited effects of historical trauma and the strength of survival and healing.
