When Ally's mom dies, Ally is left with no family, no friends and no future. Then she meets Tate, a busking fire breather, and Ally decides to run away from her foster home to start a new life as a street performer. But her problems follow her. Hiding her age, sleeping on the streets and avoiding fights with other buskers, Ally discovers that there's more to life as a fire-breathing busker than not getting burned.
