"This short, meditative film is composed of images from ancient Europe -- its bridges, roads, statues, and castles -- which become transformed in another time and place, the mind of a lost and weary traveler. While the title refers to the vampire legend, the mood of the piece is more that of a love story, mixing loneliness and longing." -- WGBH press release

Many of the images are superimposed and electronically manipulated. Repeated images of trains coursing through tunnels and individuals walking forward suggest the forward trajectory of the traveler. The pace is accelerated. There is very little credit information.

The original music score is by Elliot Sokolov.
