Synopsis: You've never experienced a movie like BURNING PALMS; five stories so twisted, they could only take place in Los Angeles. A father's relationship with his precocious teenage daughter is too close for comfort for his fiancée. A woman becomes undone by her boyfriend's kinky bedroom request. A gay couple brings home the ultimate lifestyle accessory: an African child. An unsupervised young boy leads his brothers in disturbing games. A lonely woman confronts her attacker with a bizarre request. Dylan McDermott (In the Line of Fire), Rosamund Pike (Pride and Prejudice), Shannen Doherty (Beverly Hills 90210), Lake Bell (What Happens in Vegas), Zoe Saldana (Avatar), and Nick Stahl (Sin City) head an "uncommonly good cast" (Hollywood Reporter) in this macabre comedy from the co-screenwriter of Disturbia and Paranormal Activity 2.
