It's about a vampire's day to day activities living in Iran. Reminds me of the Jim" Jarmusch vampire tale, Only Lovers Left Alive, which came out earlier this year, but this vamp had no real purpose that I could see.
I like that it was a different setting of Iran, that was very really cool. I'm sure the filmmakers were playing off the fact that the vampire's veil is being worn as if though it was Dracula's cape.
The movie has a new unique setting but it plays homage to the low budget beatnik films that would be a part of the Something Weird collection, or at least it felt that way.
Overall the movie had a cool concept that could have been flushed out better by the filmmakers.
