Viewers are dropped in the midst of a Neo-noir vampire romance set in a stylish Iranian underworld. Sheila Vand plays a hijab-clad Nosferata who rides a skateboard at night, stalking dealers and junkies who prey on women like her. When she chances upon good-hearted Arash (Arash Marandi), the two make a connection that quickly becomes jeopardized.

Director Ana Lily Amirpour's long, glistening black-and-white shots dazzle by turning even the grimiest interiors into sensual spaces of danger, intrigue and romance.
