THE BURNING WITHIN, the new film from Director Ansel Faraj is a dark psychological thriller incorporating hard boiled film noir with comic book outré;. Ex-detective Adam Sera stays at home, spending his days intoxicated, haunted by the memory of the brutal death of his sister; and his nights being tormented by threatening phone calls from a man who calls himself 'the Fireman', who threatens to blow up the city. Seeking help Adam looks to his friend and former colleague Sgt. Craig Hargroves, who is fed up with Adam and turns him away, refusing to listen. With no one to trust and no one that believes him, Adam must set out to find the Fireman on his own, while at the same time prove his worth as a detective. Add to this a shrink who enjoys deadly mind games, and a student journalist who's taken his hero worship a little too far - THE BURNING WITHIN is one hell of a ride of twists and turns, trips into fantasy, and nightmarish reality, and an explosive climax. Starring Mihran Konanyan, ... Written by Hollinsworth Productions
