Pyromaniac 

A pyromaniac ignites his first fire in a peaceful village. In the weeks to come it is followed by a series of fires, spreading fear in the small community. An inferno lurks under the surface as a local policeman uncovers the unthinkable truth: the pyromaniac is one of the local firemen, and the son of the fire brigades chief. The film is an intimate portrait of the pyromaniac and the fireman, as they dual for control of the young boys mind.
