It’s Anna’s (Bale) 24th birthday and the elderly staff at the library where she works quietly mark the occasion with carrot cake and song. Anna, a centuries old vampire, celebrates in style that night by feeding on a co-worker. In a haze of psychedelic blood fueled bliss, Anna fully indulges her addiction. Meanwhile, Robbie (Bilyk), an alcoholic party boy, wakes up in the aftermath of a bender where he blacked out and made out with his pregnant sister’s fiancé. After becoming homeless and unemployed, he stands on a bridge contemplating his fate, and meets Anna. A drunk looking for a drink and a vampire looking for a feed, they bond. Kicking Blood was filmed in Sudbury and explores the journey out of addiction using the metaphor of vampirism.


C’est le 24e anniversaire d’Anna et le personnel assez âgé de la bibliothèque où elle travaille souligne cette occasion avec du gâteau aux carottes et une chanson. Anna, une vampire plus que centenaire, célèbre avec style ce soir-là en se nourrissant du sang d’un collègue. C’est l’extase. Anna apaise sa soif, sa dépendance. Pendant ce temps, Robbie, un alcoolique qui aime festoyer, se réveille après avoir beaucoup trop bu avec le fiancé de sa sœur. Sans emploi, sans logis, il est debout sur un pont et songe à sa destinée. Il y rencontre Anna. Ces deux êtres cherchant à assouvir leur dépendance créent un lien. Kicking Blood a été tourné à Sudbury.
