Synopsis

Dwight and Jessie find themselves at odds over care for their frail and 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. His best friend Pam, a local sex worker, paying her for conversations and pining for a life outside his cyclical nightmare. As Dwight begins to distance himself from his family, the relentless Jessie will do whatever it takes to keep him home.
