Rosie's protected existence is shattered one stormy night when, after a car accident, she is forced to take home the wounded driver. She keeps him in an isolated shack not informing her 'Outsiders NOT Allowed' kind of family. The driver happens to be a wild, middle-aged and violently provocative filmmaker, Roger Viking. He decides to stay back in Rosie's remotely located house long enough to exploit the media publicity over his sudden disappearance and to finish the screenplay of his upcoming film. -And to get young innocent Rosie into his bed.
Roger and Rosie are in every way polar opposites. He personifies all the cynical exploitation in the world. She personifies all that is beautiful and sweetly romantic. Their relationship is ripe with both, sexual heat and mistrust as they circle each other, cautious yet fascinated. An awkward intimacy forms between them.
Complications surface as the script Roger is writing, starts to affect the eerie reality of Rosie's life and her family. Rosie and Roger turn against each other. Attitudes change. Situations change. What we think is real is not, what seems most implausible has the potential of being real, and the secrets that are exposed in the struggle could kill them both. The sudden twist at the film's climax begs the question: Will it?
Thou Shalt Not Kill is in the genre of The Shinning, Secret Window, The 6th Sense and The Others. TSNK is mysterious, eerie and brutal. It follows in the tradition of Stanley Kubrick, Stephen King & Night Shyamlan.
