It’s 1988 in a sleepless Manhattan fired by sex, drugs, crime, and clubs. After losing his very old friend Oskar to the police in a bloody siege, 209-year-old art dealer Luc is pursuing his taste for one night stands with talented women, still yearning for the one he abandoned in 1798. Amid a blistering heat wave, he encounters Alex, an indie filmmaker who wants this dashing, timeless Irishman to star in her Edgar Allan Poe movie. Soon Luc is rediscovering romance and sensuality with Alex—infuriating Lea, her devoted lover and producer. No less dangerous is Hector Santos, a brilliant cop whose career and body were wrecked by the demonic Oskar. Desperate for Alex, Luc keeps trying to reform. He’s running out of time and patience.
