Kathleen Conklin (Lili Taylor), a philosophy student at New York University, is dragged into an alley by a mysterious, well-dressed stranger (Annabella Sciorra) who sucks blood from her neck. Kathleen survives the attack, but develops such an overwhelming addiction to human blood that she realises she must kill to satisfy it. As she reluctantly comes to terms with her new predatory appetite, Kathleen wrestles with her conscience, desperately searching for some kind of redemption before she succumbs to an addiction that will engulf her and all those around her.
