So what’s Kali about?

Stabbed in the back, poisoned, and left for dead by her own biker gang; Kali sets off on a one-way road of vengeance across a war-torn desert battlefield. With impending death coursing through her veins and a fascist army hot on her tail, Kali will stop at nothing to get her revenge, even if it’s the last thing she ever does.

Sammelin added, “Kali is the comic book I’ve always wanted to make; a cinematic story fusing Sergio Leone and Jack Hill, bikers and bombast, revenge and psychedelia—an effortless story, but one with a violently hot beating heart.”
