Karma Kills is a darkly comic thriller about the making of a Broadway jukebox musical. When passionate director/writer Raymond Aberdeen’s show (using songs from his favorite early ‘90s “grunge” band Karma) gets picked up by a big Broadway producer, drastic changes are effected which threaten the authenticity of his project. Raymond, his slightly off-kilter lead actor Bruce, and Karma widow Candy Stone (a rock star herself) must find a way to save the show’s integrity while battling their own explosive demons. Meanwhile, there’s a psycho killer on the loose, and multiple natural disasters threaten to strike down those who dare mess with karma.
