Cannes Film Festival Palmo d'Or Nominee BURNING tells the story of three individuals and a mysterious incident they experience. Jongsu bumps into an old friend, Haemi, and she asks him to take care of her cat while she leaves on a trip. When she returns, she brings with her a man who she met on her travels, Ben. When Ben and Haemi pay Jongsu a visit, he reveals his secret interests to them, making for what the Los Angeles Times calls "a character study that morphs, with masterly patience, subtlety and nary a single wasted minute, into a teasing mystery and eventually a full-blown thriller."
