Set in South Texas where Jesus and football rule, “Killer” is the story of a high school football superstar whose dreams have been dashed by a most likely preventable injury. Dixie home cares for her wheelchair-bound son Randall (nicknamed Killer) after he sustained a traumatic brain injury during a game. A producer on the extremely popular television docu-series Reaction Sports is coming to interview Dixie and Randall for possible inclusion in a future episode. Present will be Randall’s best friend and fellow high school football superstar, Devonté, Dixie’s daughter Annabel and Dixie’s ex-husband and former coach, the volatile Butch. National exposure would almost certainly spark donations to Randall’s anemic GoFundMe campaign and help with the astronomical healthcare costs, so the interview must go well. But with exposure comes truth - and family truths can be filled with killers. The cost of winning has never been so deadly.
