An ageless immortal monster, who feeds on blood, lives in a house surrounded by a fog-shrouded forest. In general, he doesn't want any trouble with anyone and wants nothing more than to die. One day, a mute little boy ends up on his doorstep. Uncertain as to what he should do with the child, he takes him in, and the boy becomes his constant companion. Will the simple, innocent love of a silent child be enough to restore life to the vampire's bleak existence?
