This erotic thriller tells the tale of a beautiful young temptress (Parker) as she sets up her lover (Faris) to take the fall for he husband's death.BURN is produced by Los Angeles based Arlene Knight (Knight Visions Entertainment) who happens to be a Louisiana native. Knight plans to bring a block of major independent productions with cast and crew to the area."New Orleans is really part of the cast of BURN," says Knight. "It's sultry, the music,the culture, the food, even the climate all play a part in the seduction. I think the audience will be seduced as well."
