Burning Cane

Phillip Youmans | United States | 77 MINS

Feature | Drama

It’s burning season and Helen Wayne’s attempts to treat the family’s mange-ridden dog have proven fruitless. She looks to the church for hope as the dog’s rashes grow more fierce by the day. In the sanctuary, Reverend Pastor Joseph Tillman preaches a righteous sermon, but can’t seem to maintain his sobriety in the wake of his wife’s recent passing. Helen’s only surviving son Daniel’s recent unemployment has left him ruminating in isolation with his young son Jeremiah. As Daniel’s delusion swells, he begins to introduce Jeremiah to his vices.
