“Burn” tells the story of Betty, a woman haunted by the man who emotionally abused her. A traumatic event separates her physically from her tormentor, but her mind refuses to let him go. Betty must find the strength to move forward, before the ghosts of her past consume her.
[BETTY] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 45-50] [LEAD]
