Summer of 2004. Eight-year-old Sara comes from the city to the village at her grandma’s where she spends time hanging with a local ten-year old girl Vesna, who introduces her to all the secrets of life, which she learns mostly through fragments from the life of her older teenage sister Anica. Two of them wander around the village observing local rituals imbued with mythical thinking and superstition. At night, they secretly follow Anica who is seeing a mysterious guy from another village. Influenced by the stories told by her grandma and drawn by the hypnotizing aura of their meetings, Sara starts to suspect Anica’s boyfriend might be a vampire. As fear and allure collide inside of her, instead of solving the mystery, she will find acceptance in the unexplainable.
