Kill Your Darlings

Tahir is a delivery man whose job requires him to leave home before dawn. Like dawn, he lives a lone life on the edge of society where light and darkness meet. He exists in silence, warring between desire and doubt, until he finds himself with the body of a teenage boy he accidentally ran over. The boy reminds Tahir of things he has long forgotten. In an attempt to reconcile with his past, he escapes with the boy’s body. But when the supposedly dead body starts conversing with him, Tahir’s journey takes a surreal turn.
