Plot summary

Based on the writer-director’s real-life experience, Kill Your Darlings tells the wild tale of an outrageous but hilarious road trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. Erik is a confused young Swedish screenwriter looking for self-fulfilment in the land of opportunity. Unable to write and stuck with a demoralizing job as a fast-food photographer, Erik follows a mysterious woman twice his age on an increasingly strange road trip through the American southwest. What first seems like a chance encounter soon turns out to be a carefully planned cat-and-mouse game with an obscure goal waiting in Las Vegas…
