With too many books to deal with -- it's only been a year since the ban was implemented -- the government decided there could be only one way to dispose of them efficiently: {{book burning}}, a job delegated to firemen. Originally a dying breed in a time where all houses are insulated against common fires, firemen found a new purpose in life -- making midnight community rounds in search of books. Any house containing books would be doused in kerosene and burnt as a lesson to the community (and the offending party brought to law).

Guy Montag is one such fireman -- and he's pretty much been married to his job for ten years, his wife preferring to lose herself in vapid self-entertainment. His life is forever changed when he meets a young woman named Clarisse [=McCellan=], whose energetic free spirit forces him to start questioning what's happening with the world and himself. After a house burning gone bad, Montag secretly takes a book home and soon becomes fascinated with it, despite the objections of his wife and fears of his superior Beatty finding out. Deciding he must do something to save himself and at least some books, the question now becomes: how?

The [[FandomBerserkButton public is warned]] not to confuse this with the video game ''VideoGame/{{Fahrenheit}}'' or the MichaelMoore documentary ''Fahrenheit 9/11'', which briefly got Moore in mild legal trouble when Bradbury caught wind of the title he was planning to use and sued.

* MayDecemberRomance: In the novel, Clarisse is seventeen and Montag is thirty, so they have a relatively small age gap and they have a platonic, short-term friendship. However, this trope features in the script, where Clarisse, unlike in the film, is still a young girl (although her exact age is never specified) and the affection between her and Montag is more explicit than in the novel.

* ChooseYourOwnAdventure: Television programs are interactive, with viewers playing the various cast roles, and occasionally they're able to change the outcome of a story. Perhaps averted in the film version where it is arguably implied that Linda's choices have no effect on the story and that her belief that she is auditioning for a role is false, and in fact she is simply one of many playing along but her choices and her own thinking are so limited as to avoid any real ability to influence the story.
