Four friends. One intensely hot summer that will change their lives forever.
When a group of hedonistic teenagers save a woman from drowning they become unlikely local heroes, but their celebrity becomes the focus for first envy, then harassment.
Fireball takes us through their last summer together, and one that will come to define their future: a summer of sex, chemical experimentation, shifting loyalties and disillusionment.
