All over the globe, catastrophic wildfires are threatening not only our homes and our lives, but also the climate and our future. This documentary travels to the US, Canada, Europe and Asia to follow the work of a dedicated global community of scientists, firefighters and fire experts as they light experimental fires in laboratories, study the history of our forests and put under scrutiny the escalating range and impact of the blazes, from hidden smoldering fires deep inside the soil to smoke clouds reaching all the way up into the stratosphere.
