Synopsis:
15-year-old Adele wants to commit suicide, but can't bring herself to do it. When she discovers the killer Timo, who is on the run, she offers to help him - but only if he promises to kill her. This is not an easy task for any of them. They are forced to leave Adele's home town unnoticed and reach the French-German border, as the girl wants to make sure that Timo remains free long enough to fulfill his part of the deal. During the escape, they gradually bond with each other, and Adele starts having other thoughts. 'Kill Me' is an evocative and understated drama about the escape of destroyed people from their tragic past. It is also a film about an odd friendship, which ignites a spark of hope in the two characters.
