A man who has spent much of his life dealing with grief finally has more than he knows what to do with in this independent drama. Walter Hartwig Jr. (Sean Patrick Flanery) is a New York City cop who is haunted by the death of his sister, who drowned at Coney Island when he was a boy. Hartwig saw his sister die and has felt responsible ever since. Every year on her birthday, he has himself thrown into the ocean as penance, and works with the NYPD Harbor Unit in hope of someday paying back his act

Michael Phelan deserves points for chutzpah for daring to wallow in abject psychic misery in his debut film.
Phelan makes nice use of the New York locations, but all the trees in Central Park can't make up for a clichéd script and characters who speak entirely in platitudes.
A painfully sincere indie drama.
If there's an element of Into the Fire that isn't rank and offensive, I've failed to find it.
The result is 93 very long minutes' worth of admirably committed actors putting themselves through the emotional wringer to very little end.
