Orphaned during the outbreak of a worldwide plague of vicious, zombie-like vampires, Martin (Connor Paolo) is rescued by grizzled, rogue vampire-hunter Mister (Nick Damici), who mentors Martin in the brutally grisly skill of stakecraft.
Their only hope for survival is to reach the optimistically named New Eden in Canada.
But. as they cross the decimated country, helping survivors they meet along the way, including an abused nun (Kelly McGillis) and pregnant teen (Danielle Harris), the ragtag family swiftly realise that the undead are the least of their problems.
In addition to the bloodthirsty creatures, they must also fight a terrifying cult of fundamentalist extremists whose leader, Jebedia Loven (Michael Cerveris), sadistically celebrates the plague as the work of the Lord.
