Things We Lost in the Fire

Directed by Susanne Bier

After her husband dies in an act of senseless violence, Audrey Burke is left alone with two young children and no idea how to cope. Nearly paralyzed by grief, Audrey tracks down her husband's childhood friend, Jerry. Jerry is a drug addict, but Audrey invites him to move into her home nevertheless, and a mutually dependent relationship develops between the two damaged souls.

A recent widow invites her late husband's troubled best friend to live with her and her two children. As he gradually turns his life around, he helps the family cope and confront their loss.
