After purchasing a property on Parker Lane, a man bonds with the essence of the former owner, a hard-luck artist. His reality changes dramatically when the artist’s spirit brings him into contact with a mystical dagger. In his increasingly deranged mind, the blade becomes his lover, and he seeks to feed it what it desires most, the blood of those living on Parker Lane.
