A special brand of wildness overtakes Sydney on New Years Eve. Traditional barriers of class and culture dissolve as everyone jostles for the best view. Throughout Fireworks the clock ticks relentlessly – but we begin at 8am, when flirtatious high-powered executive Natasha and her barista friend Harrison swap party invitations, not realising that they’re in love. Dalliances, prophecies and erotic adventures play out across town as Natasha and Harrison scramble to reunite before midnight.
Conceived by Jim Sharman
Screenplay by Lewis Treston & Laurence Rosier Staines
Fireworks is planned as the first part of a screen trilogy that explores the past and future of a city, involving romance, celebration, mystery and intrigue.
