Burn - Poster

Feature debut

Melinda, a young employee at a petrol station sees her life turned upside down when she witnesses a hold-up at her place of work. She then decides to regain control in her own way for better or, above all, for worse.

The unexpected is the watchword for this nocturnal thriller, which is far from being as predictable as it would seem. Abruptly switching from black comedy to dogged survival, it constantly calls our perceptions into question as one turn of events succeeds another.A subtle and ingenious film set in a contained environment, underpinned by a young cast whose talent needs no further proof.
