Born to Kill is an intense and powerful psychological thriller about a teenage boy trying to hide his psychopathic desires while falling in love for the first time.
This edgy, cinematic drama is a haunting exploration of the mind of a 16-year-old boy on the brink of adulthood, and of the fears of his single mother who’s keeping a traumatic secret from him.
Sam is embarking on his first romance with fellow teenager Chrissy, who’s moved to the area after family turmoil of her own. But things are about to take a much darker turn. Beneath the surface of his charismatic persona, Sam is experiencing more than the usual teenage angst – a psychopathic urge to kill. His family and friends have no idea what he is capable of. Only his victims know the chilling truth. And they’re not talking any more.
