Overview

Inspired by real-life events, HENRY FLAMETHROWA tells the story of sixteen-year-old Henry, a confused and emotionally isolated young man who writes letters to the devil, unbeknownst to his deeply religious father, Peter. Henry�s younger sister, Lilja, lies silent in a coma from a mysterious childhood accident in the family swimming pool. For a number of years, Lilja has been visited by miracles, and the sick have flocked to this silent child�s bedside, claiming their prayers for healing have been answered in her presence. When Beth, a reporter, arrives to do a story about Lilja and her miracles, Henry confesses that he plans to disconnect Lilja�s breathing ventilator and allow her to die. Beth must then decide whether she should expose Henry�s plan and must confront her own assumptions about faith, spirituality and the intrinsic value of human life.
