BURNING is the searing examination of an alienated young man, Jong-su (Yoo Ah-in), a frustrated introvert whose already difficult life is complicated by the appearance of two people into his orbit: first, Hae-mi (newcomer Jeon Jong-seo), a spirited woman who offers romantic possibility, and then, Ben (Steven Yeun, THE WALKING DEAD, SORRY TO BOTHER YOU), a wealthy and sophisticated young man she returns from a trip with.  When Jongsu learns of Ben’s mysterious hobby and Haemi suddenly disappears, his confusion and obsessions begin to mount, culminating in a stunning finale.
