Bullied and lonely, Oskar is a timid 12 year old boy whose dream for a friend finally comes true when Eli moves in next door. The strange young girl is ghostly pale, only comes out at night and is unaffected by freezing temperatures. Coinciding with Eli's arrival is a series of inexplicable disappearances and murders that cause Oskar's inquisitive mind to race. Caught between the innocence of childhood romance and the truth of Eli's identity, this darkly atmospheric tale is also an unexpectedly tender tableau of adolescence.
