The story of "Anakim of the Sun: Being Human" is about Father Antonio Rivera, a vampire who became a priest in the hopes of being cured of his blood lust. Though a member of The Church, Antonio finds himself at odd when he must confront his past and is forced to face the one thing he never did: give himself completely to God. By doing so, he realizes the theme behind the Gospel according to John: the road to Heaven is black and white; everything you do, say, think and feel will either take you closer to Heaven or take you closer to Hell... but ultimately, it's your decision.
