Z (Alex Spears) and X (Vanessa de Largie) are a vampire couple, living in an old warehouse in inner-city Melbourne. Over the course of one night, they go about their regular business, teaming up with the poet-cannibal Seers (Patrick Boyle) and another vampire Vee (HaiHa Le). After a strange encounter with the mysterious Rola (Jennifer Levy), the fabric of Z and X's world begins to change. A philosophical vampire film.
