Drugs, vampirism, existential crises and melodies from another time mark the lives of several characters: a sex symbol of the underground cinema, two cursed lovers, a man seeking his salvation, an unsuccessful actress and a Japanese suffering a mysterious illness. Five stories, apparently independent from each other, that have a curious relationship with each other: Paul Morrissey, collaborator of Andy Warhol’s Factory.
