Elizabeth, a tough, jaded twenty-three-year-old, has a strained relationship with her mother, Sarah. She has never met her father, who left Sarah before Elizabeth was born. Sarah is now married to Tim, a recovering alcoholic who used to physically abuse Sarah when he was drunk.
One night Elizabeth goes out to a bar and meets Johnny, a shy, kind-hearted twenty-three-year-old. Elizabeth and Johnny begin dating and quickly grow very close, although she is hesitant to admit how much she needs him. Johnny, however, knows that he's deeply in love with her. After a couple months of seeing each other, they have a falling out. One night soon after, Johnny is involved in a car accident. The doctors determine that he doesn't have long to live.
Seth, a guarded man who appears to be twenty-five, has been watching over Elizabeth. Seth takes it upon himself to save Johnny in the only way that he can: He turns Johnny into a vampire.
Struggling to come to terms with their past, present, and each other, Elizabeth, Johnny, and Seth must do nothing less than discover who they truly are and what they're really capable of.
Daylight Fades is a film that explores loss, regret, love, redemption, mortality, and the bonds that can keep us together or pull us apart. It's a story about people who are desperate for a second chance, realizing it may be their last.

Russia 1855.  After forty years of peace in Europe, war rages. In the Crimea, the city of Sevastopol is besieged. In the north, Saint Petersburg is blockaded. But in Moscow there is one who needs only to sit and wait – wait for the death of an aging tsar, and for the curse upon his blood to be passed to a new generation.
As their country grows weaker, a man and a woman – unaware of the hidden ties that bind them – must come to terms with their shared legacy. In Moscow, Tamara Valentinovna Komarova uncovers a brutal murder and discovers that it not the first in a sequence of similar crimes, merely the latest, carried out by a killer who has stalked the city since 1812.
And in Sevastopol, Dmitry Alekseevich Danilov faces not only the guns of the combined armies of Britain and France, but must also make a stand against creatures that his father had thought buried beneath the earth, thirty years before.
