Athan is a newly converted vampire with no recollection of who or what he is. He meets Evander, a history and mythology buff, at a new age bookstore while researching about vampires. The two men are lonely and enjoy each other’s company and slowly become friends. Athan has never been in a relationship with another man and Evander has never recovered from a painful past and does not believe in pursuing a more substantial commitment. Meanwhile, there have been a series of murders throughout Boston targeting underprivileged teenagers. Athan admits to Evander that not only is he a vampire but that he suspects himself to be the killer.
