Filled with gremlins, sword fights, demon queens, and dark elves, She Kills Monsters is an offbeat adventure that awakens the inner geek warrior in us all. Cast of Set in Athens, Ohio in the mid '90s, She Kills Monsters tells the story of two sisters from very different worlds and an unexpected game that unites them. While Agnes is an average teen desperate to fit into the mainstream, her younger sibling Tilly is obsessed with magic and all things Dungeons & Dragons. After Tilly's unexpected death, Agnes finds her sister's homemade Dungeons & Dragons module and becomes catapulted into the imaginary realm that was her sister's refuge. In the hopes of forging a connection with the sibling she never really had a chance to understand, Agnes enlists the help of Tilly's highschool D&D network to play out her final campaign.
