One night over the city a mysterious blinding light appears in a clear evening sky. For days afterwards the city reels from the flash's effects as people try to unlock the secret of the strange light in the sky. But in the weeks following another more lasting effect of the flash begins to emerge. Everyone in the city seems to have been affected by the flash in some way. Everyone has their own flash story. How the flash has become a pivotal point in their life - forcing a decision, marking a turning point, causing a shift in perspective. Through a rich collage of encounters, the city's inhabitants are brought to life "post flash" as they struggle to solve the mystery of the flash. Guiding us through this modern day "inferno" is Steve, a male nurse at a psychiatric hospital and sometime drag singer. Like Virgil to our Dante he leads us through the city, introducing us to its inhabitants.
