Based on John M Brinnin’s account of his hell-raising hero, Dylan Thomas’, first visit to New York in 1950, SET FIRE TO THE STARS is the feature debut of director Andy Goddard (Downton Abbey, Once Upon A Time) and stars Elijah Wood (Lord Of The Rings), Celyn Jones (Castles In The Sky/Above Suspicion), Kelly Reilly(Sherlock Holmes, Flight), Stephen Mackintosh (The Sweeney, Kick-Ass 2) and Shirley Henderson (Bridget Jones, Filth). In 1950, John M Brinnin invited the highly acclaimed and infamous Welshman Dylan Thomas to New York for a series of poetry readings, touring around the most prestigious college campuses of the United States. Ignoring persistent rumours of Thomas’ frivolities back home, Brinnin has his hands full when the poet arrives on US shores. In a desperate attempt to keep him sober, Brinnin takes Thomas to his family retreat in the woods of Connecticut. But even in the middle of nowhere, Thomas finds an audience for his art, his passion, love and aggression.

Fun-loving, twenty-something, sisters Kate and Lisa are ready for the holiday of a lifetime in Mexico. When the opportunity to go cage diving to view Great White sharks presents itself, thrill-seeking Kate jumps at the chance while Lisa takes some convincing. After some not so gentle persuading, Lisa finally agrees and the girls soon find themselves two hours off the coast of Huatulco and about to come face-to-face with nature's fiercest predator.
But what should have been the trip to end all trips soon becomes a living nightmare when the cage breaks free from the boat and plummets to the ocean floor. Kate and Lisa find themselves trapped deep underwater with less than an hour of oxygen left in their tanks.
