The film follows Jon Wallace during his last fire as Prescribed Fire Specialist at Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. The Last Dance Fire began as a lightning strike on July 8th in the Refuge interior and burned a total of 12,900 acres. Previous prescribed burns had minimized the intensity of the fire. The film describes the complexity of balancing the necessary ecological benefits of fire in a fire-adapted Everglades ecosystem while adjacent to the huge urban center of Palm Beach County.
