An enchanting, brutal vampire myth and coming-of-age love story adapted from the best-selling novel and award-winning film.
Oskar is a bullied, lonely teenage boy living with his mother on a housing estate at the edge of town when a spate of sinister killings rock the neighbourhood.
Eli is the young girl who has just moved in next door. She doesn’t go to school and never leaves the flat by day.
Sensing in each other a kindred spirit, the two become devoted friends.
What Oskar doesn’t know is that Eli has been a teenager for a very long time.
