After a torrid act of vengeance on the home of her ex-lover, 66-year old Nona flees to her summer house in Pichilemu, a Chilean coastal town. There she potters about in apparent satisfaction, until a series of forest fires drives many of her neighbours from their homes. The formerly quiet shady streets are imbued with fear. The police investigation turns up nothing and the residents grow increasingly speculative about the possible cause. Remarkably enough, Nona’s small home is undamaged. Whilst more and more houses go up in flames, this intriguing protagonist displays the different sides of her character: Nona the grandmother, Nona the friend, Nona the anarchist, Nona the storyteller, joker, liar – and Nona the firebrand.
