Longer Synopsis:

Dakota is trying to figure out how to break up with her long-term boyfriend, Axel, who she shares a flat with. She has a wild past. She represented exciting opportunities to him.

He represented stability to her. But they haven’t been able to make it work because they are fundamentally incompatible.

Things quickly turn sour, as Axel begins to develop into a horrendous creature. He sweats thick goo and sprouts dark veins. Dakota tries to get him to the hospital, but Axel turns aggressive and animalistic at the fear of being left by her.

As the toxicity fully takes hold, Dakota becomes equally infected, as the pair grapple with the remains of their relationship, which threatens to come to a bloody end...
