MIDNIGHT SON tells the story of Jacob (Zak Kilberg), a young man confined to a life of detachment because of a rare skin disorder that prevents him from being exposed to sunlight. His lifestyle takes a different direction when he meets and falls for bartender Mary (Maya Parish). However, Jacob’s behaviour becomes increasingly unusual as he attempts to deal with the effects of his extreme condition, which forces him to drink human blood as a local Detective (Larry Cedar) closes in on him as a suspect in a series of grisly murders.
