Hybrid documentary/romantic comedy. Hurricane Sandy breached the boundaries of New York City and analogously the romantic comedy portion of this film is breached by on-camera interviews with fire fighters who lost their homes to fire and water. Eventually, the fictional characters and the real people meet--or do they? The Dark Side contains never before seen footage of the Breezy Point Fire taken by one of the fire fighters that far surpasses anything yet witnessed by any audience of the largest residential fire in New York City since the Civil War.
