In the Iranian ghost-town Bad City, a place that reeks of death and loneliness, the townspeople are unaware they are being stalked by a lonesome vampire.

'It looks most like Rumble Fish, as if it took place in a dystopia of the ’50s extrapolated into a post-collapse future — a pile of dead bodies mounts in a ravine, not all dumped by the Girl, and everyone is desperate, alone and obsessed. The characters are cartoons or attitudes rather than people, but the world they inhabit is beguiling, threatening and eerily credible' - Kim Newman, Empire
