A vampiric romp themed around the love of a couple unwilling to accept the massive obstacle between them.

Alexandre, a Swiss photographer, and his girlfriend Livia are visiting Romania for a romantic vacation. All is perfect until Alex is involved in a car accident, which requires him to receive a blood transfusion. Soon after returning home, Alex develops a taste for human blood and gradually realizes he is becoming something most people don’t believe in – a vampire. The couple’s love is strong, and Livia is determined to stand by her man regardless of his newfound appetite. Watch what horrors unfold and see how two people in love reconcile the unconscionable in this one of a kind blend of relationship drama and classic camp horror.
