In an attempt to show affection to Caleb, Mae transforms him into a vampire.  Although her brother, Severen (Bill Paxton) wants him murdered, she convinces the family to accept the newcomer, and teach him what is required of the undead.  The task is not easy however, andCalebdesperately yearns to return to his family.
