"In 2012, New Zealand's most well-known documentarians, Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, teamed up to follow a group of Wellington-based vampires. Yes, actual, real vampires. The resulting film is a raw, unflinching look at the lives of the undead community, and no stone unturned. From hunting victims and draining their blood to more mundane activities like paying the rent and keeping the house tidy, What We Do In The Shadows documents their struggles, fears and dreams and asks the question -"If your heart is cold and dead, are you actually dead? Obviously, you are, but are you truly really DEAD dead?"--Container insert

While waiting for their parents, two boys and a girl meet in the carpark of a rural pub. What at first seems to be a relationship based on rivalry soon develops into a close friendship. We learn that love can be found in the most unlikely of places
