Dougray Scott, Saffron Burrows, and Leo Gregory star in director Glenn Standring's tale about vampires and humans peacefully co-existing in an alternate-universe, 1960s-era New Zealand, and the chaos that unfolds when a mysterious influenza epidemic begins sweeping through the human population. Nuovo Zelandia is a land where humans and immortals live side by side in harmony, the immortals representing the next phase in human evolution. When a virulent influenza virus begins infecting the mortals and a renegade vampire named Edgar resorts to feeding on their blood, the church dispatches Silas (Scott) on a mission to capture the murdering vampire and restore the delicate balance that once held their community together. Aided in his mission by a human police captain (Burrows) who isn't willing to let any more of his fellow men fall, Silas soon discovers that his mysterious target harbors some deeply disturbing secrets.
