Plot: What's the story about?

In this modern horror-comedy, Nicholas Hoult stars as Renfield, the loyal but tortured aide to history’s most narcissistic boss, Dracula (Oscar® winner Nicolas Cage). Every day, Renfield is forced to procure his master’s human prey and do his bidding, no matter how embarrassing. But now, after centuries of servitude, Renfield has decided to find a life outside the shadow of The Prince of Darkness; if only he can figure out how to end his codependency.
