Queens, New York. 14 year-old Milo is an outsider. Orphaned, ignored by his schoolmates and bullied by older kids, he takes refuge in the apartment he shares with his older brother. To escape his solitude, he immerses himself in the world of the vampire. Milo hides a dark secret, but a chance encounter with a new neighbour Sophie leads him to develop new feelings. But is this enough to quash his dark urges?
A Cannes favourite - this NYC-set moody vampire fable acknowledges its many antecedents and marks a dazzling debut for its first time director.Gráinne Humphreys, Festival Director
