The synopsis reads: "Everyone Else Burns is a coming-of-age comedy about a Mancunian family and the puritanical Christian sect they are devoted to."

"Will patriarchal David Lewis ever ascend the church ranks and become an Elder? Will dutiful wife Fiona deviate from her own dogmatic moral compass? Will their naïve 17-year-old daughter Rachel be allowed to go to university, and will 12-year-old son Aaron ever fend off his secular bullies? All could lead to damnation."

The series has been described as "funny, warm, and light".

It's a "subversive, authentic and bitingly funny exploration" into what it feels like to balance faith, family and identity in a world that could end tomorrow.
