Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga is a 2020 American comedy film directed by David Dobkin, written by Andrew Steele and Will Ferrell and starring Ferrell, Rachel McAdams, Pierce Brosnan, Dan Stevens and Demi Lovato. The film is set during a fictional version of the contest and follows two Icelandic singers as they are given the chance to represent their country at the contest.
The film was initially scheduled for a May 2020 release to coincide with the Eurovision Song Contest 2020, however the release was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film was released on Netflix on June 26, 2020.
Melodifestivalen veteran Molly Sandén (under the pseudonym My Marianne) provides the singing voice for McAdams' character.
In Husavik, a small town in Iceland, a fisherman's son named Lars Erickssong and a girl named Sigrit Ericksdottir form the singing duet called "Fire Saga". Their dream is to one day represent their country at the Eurovision Song Contest.
After many of the contestants in the Icelandic national final - including the winner - die due to a boat explosion at a post-competition party, Fire Saga, as the only survivors of the incident, get the ticket to Eurovision by default, which is set to take place in Edinburgh, United Kingdom.
The duo are considered the underdogs, with Russia as the overwhelming favorite. It's up to them to prove to Europe that they have what it takes to win.
