Police detective Raphaël Styx is hunting the man who shot him dead, while trying to figure out what it means to be ‘undead’. A race against a monster, against time and against himself. And the ultimate second chance to restore the suffering he caused to his loved ones.
Police detective Raphaël Styx feels every bit as decrepit as the Belgian coastal town of Ostend, the streets of which he patrols. One night, on his way back from an illicit operation, he happens upon a masked man and a dead body. The man in the mask pulls a gun and shoots Styx dead. But as the sun rises, Styx opens his eyes again. Did he somehow cheat death? But he feels no pulse. Has he been given a second chance? If so, he is determined to make the most of it. He wants to win back the love of his wife and the respect of his kids. He wants to be a good cop, a good human being. Will Styx be able to protect his family from the monstrous creature he is slowly becoming? And will he be able to stop the mysterious masked killer who is still prowling the streets of Ostend?
