A young couple retreats from the big city to a secluded cabin by a lake, only to find their new home to be stranger than expected. Each night the clouds open up, and a mass of burning people pour into the water. When the couple takes one of these burning people into their home, they find their lives become stranger still.
Now faceless policemen wander the tree line.
Now the animals gather in wicker churches.
Now something wicked boils beneath the lake.
The Burning Person is a spooky lullaby you probably shouldn’t sing aloud. It’s a surrealist fable for the end times. A fever dream about spirals, family, blackbirds, and smoke.
