    Milo Ventimiglia (TV Series Heroes, TV Series Wolverine, Rocky Ballboa) plays Paolo, a screenwriter who has ensconced himself in a house far away from Hollywood in order to finish what seems like his last stab at writing a commercial screenplay. He's easily distracted though and, after meeting the beautiful Djuna (Josephine de La Baume - Rush, One Day) during a night out, he's inextricably infatuated. Djuna digs Paolo too, but she's got a rare "blood disorder" that doesn't allow her to venture out into sunlight. Scarily persistent, Milo keeps courting her until she finally relents and agrees to hook up with him under one condition - she needs to be tied up so she can't bite him. Needless to say their lovemaking is somewhat acrobatic (despite the bondage) and she's presented with a fair shot at his neck, which she takes.

    Djuna begins to school Paolo in the ways of the vampire. They try to drink only synthetic or harvested blood and kill only animals (killing humans is strictly forbidden). But that doesn't mean they live in a prudish culture. Paolo instantly takes a shine to the Euro-glitterati lifestyle that accompanies eternal life. Soon enough, trouble comes in the form of Djuna's more carnal and violent sister, Mimi (Roxane Mesquida). Mimi doesn't believe in the whole "not killing people" thing. She's also not big on being tied down, preferring her three-ways and one night stands anytime and anywhere she can get them.
