After ending his relationship with Vanessa Valladares in April 2021, Zac Efron returns to the big Hollywood productions with the promise of ripping us off several scares this 2022.

According to the Universal pictures synopsis, for more than a decade, parents Andy (Zac Efron) and Vicky (Sydney Lemmon) have been on the run, desperate to hide their daughter Charlie (Ryan Kiera Armstrong) from a shadowy federal agency that wants to take advantage of his unprecedented gift for creating fire into a weapon of mass destruction.

Andy has taught Charlie how to deactivate his power, which is triggered by anger or pain. But when Charlie turns 11, the fire becomes increasingly difficult to control.
