High-tech entrepreneur Michael Kuperman has discovered that a powerful American corporation has been selling chemical weapons abroad illegally. What must he do with this knowledge? Ultimately, the Kuperman family must flee Boston and hide their identity. Dealing with danger soon changes their life as a family.

Kuperman struggles with his heritage as a Jew. Wishing he could hide in a sentimental version of his heritage, he becomes aware of its passion for justice and remembers moments from his ancestors’ past that have made survival possible. In a direct, literal way, the legacy of his grandfather protects him and his family in their immediate danger.

Kuperman’s Fire both celebrates the miracle of our survival and insists on our responsibility to face evil and continue the miracle.
