A fragile, anxious boy, 12-year-old Oskar is regularly bullied by his stronger classmates but never strikes back. The lonely boy's wish for a friend seems to come true when he meets Eli, also 12, who moves in next door to him. A pale, serious young girl, she only comes out at night, can perform inhuman physical feats and has thirst for blood. It doesn’t take long for Oskar to realize Eli is a vampire, but he can't stay away from the girl who has finally given him courage. He becomes increasingly aware of the tragic, inhuman dimension of Eli's plight, but cannot bring himself to forsake her. The film continues to receive praise from critics and audiences, and has received 20 awards and counting.
