Kyle's life begins to unravel when a terrible fire consumes his aunt's orchid estate on Maui destroying their livelihood, and killing his only living relative. Realizing that the fire was meant for him, he must flee for his life. He moves to Tempe, Arizona, bringing the only orchid to survive the fire-the Dracula vampira. Finding solace in the gay community of Ixtlan, Kyle begins to heal from his troubled past, but even his new identity as Tom Tanner cannot protect him from his tragic fate.
