My Heart Can't Beat Unless You Tell It To

Dwight and Jessie find themselves at odds over care for their frail and sickly younger brother Thomas, who only lives off human blood. Leaving a trail of corpses in their wake, Dwight wrestles with the reality of what it takes to keep his brother alive. He befriends Pam, a local sex worker, paying her for conversations, growing a craving for a life outside his cyclical nightmare. As Dwight begins to distance himself from his family, matriarchal Jessie will do whatever it takes to keep him home.
