In this white-knuckle ride, 'Kill Me First' brings to life the seductive, ever-shifting balance between good and evil, and our horrified yet mesmerised fascination with violent brutality. A seemingly unstoppable terrorist and human killing machine, Merec enjoys playing a game with his victims, forcing them to choose whether or not to save their own lives.
One victim, Sarah, confounds Merec's cynical expectations. She offers her life in exchange for another's. Fascinated by her refusal, Merec kidnaps her to continue the game. Unaware she has become a national celebrity from videos that Merec has released to the media, Sarah discovers that living on the razor's edge has given her an unexpected purpose - and an illicit sense of freedom. An intelligent thriller, this hypnotic portrait of a fiend and his victim will linger in the mind long after the story ends.
