Zäk lives in a small hamlet in the middle of a vast desert wasteland known as Híkhherra. After his mother, Elnà, dies in mysterious circumstances, Zäk leaves with his newfound friend, Agrénnà the desert vixen. Soon he learns that he is a vampire, a member of a small race hiding deep in a forest from a group known as the Cleansers, who exist to ‘purge’ these ‘monsters’ from the desert. With the vampires, Zäk learns that it is his destiny to free the trapped soul of a dead boy, named Ashein. Together, they set out to liberate Ashein, to solve the mystery of Elnà’s death and to end the genocide of the vampiric race.
