Plot Summary

When a plague devastated life on Earth, the population died or became a sort of zombie living in the dark. Dr. Robert Morgan is the unique healthy survivor on the planet, having a routine life for his own survival: he kills the night creatures along the day and maintains the safety of his house, to be protected along the night. He misses his beloved wife and daughter, consumed by the outbreak, and he fights against his loneliness to maintain mentally sane. When Dr. Morgan finds the contaminated Ruth Collins, he uses his blood to heal her and he becomes the last hope on Earth to help the other contaminated survivors. But the order of this new society is scary. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This is why it seems he's taking extra care with the bodies. For the scene at the pit, however, he's handling dummies for obvious reasons. See more »
Goofs When Morgan returns home at night and is fighting the vampires he opens his unlocked front door and enters. The marauding vampires should have been able to enter the home, before his arrival, with the door unlocked. See more »
