The movie is based on a true event in the year 1944, about a murder case that helped in the brooding of the Beat Generation in 1950s.
The story of the movie ‘Kill Your Darlings’ is about the relationship of Allen Ginsberg with Lucien Carr and Jack Keouac. Allen is introduced by Carr to Lucien and Beat poet William S. Borroughs.
