The Arsonists

By Caleb Stone

Directed by Sadie Yi

The little town of Plainfield, Wisconsin is plunged into the headlines upon its discovery of the horrific acts committed by one of its citizens: Ed Gein. Two couples grapple with their values, beliefs, and personal morals in the midst of an onslaught of unwelcome media attention; the strain takes a toll on their friendship and changes all of their lives, forever.
