A dreamlike horror short about longing, loneliness and struggling with one’s destiny. Gothic horror meets small town teenage romance, as the film follows a nameless girl who lives a seemingly solitary life in an abandoned farm house. As she spends most of her time voyeuristically gazing at a boy in town, it soon becomes clear that she is bound to something else. In the attic of the old house resides a sinister presence who the girl serves – and who has a unquenchable thirst for blood. As she grows more fascinated by the boy, she is torn between her desires and her ties.
