Dwight cares for his sickly younger brother Thomas, who only lives off human blood. Leaving a trail of corpses in their wake, Dwight wrestles with the reality of what it takes to keep his brother alive. He befriends Pam, a local sex worker, pining for a life outside his cyclical nightmare. But his relentless older brother, Jessie, will do whatever it takes to keep him home. (photo credits: Dualist)
