Beyond the Fire

Beyond the Fire Information

Beyond the Fire is a 2009 British romantic drama film, written and directed by Maeve Murphy and produced by Dean Silvers and Marlen Hecht.


Beyond the Fire tells the story of Sheamy and Katie. Sheamy is a gentle but troubled Irish ex-priest who arrives in London to find his old family friend and mentor Father Brendan. Katie is a warm hearted woman with her own emotional scars. After arriving in London, Sheamy tries to make contact with Father Brendan. As he is not at home when he calls, he contacts the only other person he knows in London, Rory, a distant relative by marriage. Rory is a musician and band member and, after meeting Sheamy at a gig (where Sheamy makes a good first impression on Katie, who manages the band), offers him a bed and introduces him more fully to Katie, his flatmate. There is an immediate and obvious attraction between Sheamy and Katie. The film follows their attempts to form a lasting relationship despite both their pasts continuing to haunt them.
