A trip to Ottery St Mary in Devon for the annual barrel burning
festival turns into a romantic, comic odyssey.
Steve returns to his home town for the yearly barrel burning
festival with his metropolitan fiancé Felicity in tow, but his
weekend is complicated by the appearance of an unrequited
teenage crush, slapstick adventures among old friends and
life-changing realisations, all set against the ever-present
danger of those flaming tar barrels.
A romantic comedy set in the English county of Devon, 'Flaming
Barrels of Love' is based around the annual barrel burning
festival which takes place in the small town of Ottery St. Mary.
This feature is both a British take on the return-to-home-town
coming of age comedy, and a crowd-pleasing romance.
