"Fire rests at an intersection between a series of competing discourses on diasporic identity, sexuality, nationalism, religion, modernity, and globalization. It inhabits an overdetermined site, which is loaded with ambiguity and difficulty. This is most notably exemplified in the inability of the heroines to articulate through language their position and relationship in this intricate network, even as they succeed in articulating it through religious sacraments and symbols."
