Brothers Hazel (Charlie Stover) and Jodie A'Dale (Skyler Peters), along with their good friend Alice (Phoebe Ferro), pull off a daring heist to steal the latest and greatest in video game technology. Upon arriving back at the A'Dale household, and assembling a bespoke buffet of carefully arranged snacks, they plug in their newly grifted entertainment hardware to discover something even more insidious than a controller-smashing boss battle: a TV that has been password protected by the A'Dale brothers’ mother Julie (Danielle Hoetmer), who is sick in bed. Intent on having her children spend the summer outdoors, she makes the motley crew a condition for the TV password: one blueberry pie. These words set the three leads out on a magical quest full of speckled eggs, nefarious villains (including the Enchanted Blade Gang), dance sequences and a precocious young girl named Petal (Lorelei Olivia Mote) who may or may not be a fairy.

The feature debut of Weston Razooli who, in addition to directing, wrote, produced, edited and stars in the film, RIDDLE OF FIRE is an evocative throwback to the coming-of-age adventure films of the 80s. Lushly photographed on location in Utah on 16mm film and featuring a luminous dungeon synth soundtrack, RIDDLE OF FIRE is a rousing, tactile fantasy for adventurous cinephiles of all ages. Vinegar Syndrome Pictures is proud to bring this singular experience home following rapturous festival and theatrical runs, including its premiere in the Director's Fortnight at Cannes Film Festival in 2023.
