From eerie horror to human tragedy, from biting science fiction to unearthly fantasy, from realistic human drama to quirky surrealism, Heat has it all.
In Heat, Steve Carr explores character and sorrow. The protagonists’ lives had pushed them back into a corner and there was nowhere else for them to go, no matter how much they tried to run, or fight, or bargain their way out. Whether through bad decisions or bad luck, things hadn’t turned out so great for them. We all think that we’re missing out on something, that better things are out there, if only someone would come along and rescue us. If only something would go in our favor to bring us what we want – but for many of the characters, as in life, it’s the end-of-the road.
