The film We Kill Stella shows the protagonist Anna writing down her story, which is actually the story of nineteen-year-old Stella who had stayed with Anna and her family in the big city while studying. During her stay, Stella was seduced by Anna’s husband Richard, a handsome and successful attorney, before being dumped. Stella commits suicide following a forced abortion by throwing herself in front of a truck. Anna is aware of her complicity in this tragic event, and attempts to cleanse her soul by bringing the story to paper.
