Casey is close to death. Regular blood transfusions keep him aliveuntil now. After his last transfusion something inside him changes. A new vision emerges that allows him to see that some of the people around him are not people at all. They are unearthly one-eyed creatures that seem to want him dead, but why? His metamorphosis continues and he finds that he can no longer endure the light of day and he is developing some very strange cravings. He is unwillingly drawn into a running battle between the unearthly things and the others, another warring faction, whomever they may be. Amidst this chaos he finds a guide. A mute little girl, who has teeth like a shark, points the way. Fighting his way through the war-torn night he discovers that he is the only thing standing between an inconceivable horror and the end of life on Earth.
