SIREN is film about a young woman with an unusual gift: she is irresistible to all men because of her scent. LEIGH appears as the object of their desire, their ultimate fantasy, and the love they experience is immediate, desperate, and occasionally violent.  So Leigh is forced to live an isolated, lonely life in a house hidden away from society. One day, a storm breaks down the security system, and a mysterious man infiltrates her world. GUY, a handsome drifter, is apparently immune to her curse.  For years, Leigh has been in danger:  pharmaceutical companies, curious doctors, and jealous wives have all put her life at risk. Will Leigh be able to elude the dangers that encounter from every side, with Guy to protect her?  And will she, at long last, find true love??
