KILL ME

Horror, 3 women 4 flex roles, 70-80 min.

SYNOPSIS

Upon awakening from a post-traumatic coma, Cam is convinced that she has lost her ability to die.  As her reaction to immortality rapidly shifts from invincible wonder to cosmic terror, her sanity begins to break.  Fearing life eternal, Cam attempts suicide…again…and again…causing her sister and lover to grapple with nightmares of their own, born in the dream world, and the real one.  Are the demons plaguing these women real or imagined…and is there ultimately a difference?  Through relentlessly shifting dimensions, soundscapes, and mental worlds, KILL ME presents a lyrical horror story in which unending life proves worse than death.
