The story begins when the main character returns to his mother's lakeside house to tell her that, due to his gambling addiction, he has lost everything, including her house. The mother manages to stop him from committing suicide, and helps him to fake his death. The son carries on with his life, living in the attic of the mother's house, and pretending that he is a vampire.
