Burning Palms is a satire thriller movie that was written and directed by Christopher B. Landon. The film follows various Los Angeles based stereotypes in various situations through five different stories that intertwine. The Green Eyed Monster story revolves around Dedra Davenport (played by Rosamund Pike) who meets her fiance’s (played by Dylan McDermott) 15 year old daughter (played by Emily Meade) for the first time. It is soon discovered that the relationship between the girl and her father is quite unhealthy and borders closely upon incestuous, much to her dismay.

Buyer’s Remorse is about a wealthy and well known gay couple in the West Hollywood area, played by Peter Macdissi and Anson Mount. They adopt a 7 year old girl from Africa (played by Tiara McKinney). Soon it is very apparent that they are mentally unfit to deal with all of the risks and challenges of parenthood. As a result, it seems the girl is a mute because she refuses to speak to them.

This Little Piggy centers on Ginny Bai (played by Jamie Chung) who agrees to take part in a very unconventional sexual act with boyfriend, Chad Bower (played by Robert Hoffman). After she reluctantly does this, she slowly starts to lose her mind. When she develops an odd smell on her finger and she cannot get rid of it - she has no idea where to turn for help.

Maneater features an unknown man (played by Nick Stahl) who breaks into a very introverted woman’s apartment. Sarah Cotton (played by Zoe Saldana) is raped, after which she locates the rapist’s wallet. To his surprise, she is able to track him down, making a shocking request.

Kangaroo Court follows a nanny (played by Lake Bell) who cares for a number of neglected children. During the process, she encounters and discovers some very dangerous information concerning the staff who live at the mansion residence.
