"Childhood on Fire"
February 2020 VC Official Selection

Jason Hanasik

Logline: When Nick Hurndon was six years old he and his two older brothers were set on fire by their stepfather in their San Francisco home. Now in his early forties, Nick is a retired Marine and is raising two sons that are about the same age he was when he was set ablaze. This is a film about childhood trauma and the effects that abuse had on his sense of self-worth and the ways in which one man is interrupting a cycle of violence so that his two sons can thrive.
