Plot: "A Pyromaniac's Love Story" is a quirky yarn of crime, mistaken identity and false confessions.
The plot focuses on Sergio, a lovelorn pastry boy who is convinced (along with the police) that his employer, Mr. Linzer, set fire to his own shop. But after further investigation, Sergio finds that Garet, the son of a wealthy businessman, started the blaze in a fit of jealousy -- he believed that his girlfriend and Sergio were having an affair. Garet's father offers Sergio $25,000 if he will take the blame, and Sergio agrees, hoping that the cash will provide a better life for him and his lover.
But the plot thickens when Mr. Linzer, anxious to protect Sergio, confesses to the police... followed by Mrs. Linzer, the baker's wife, who assures the police that she is the real culprit.
