Avery goes about her chores on the farm – collecting food for Eve and blood from the animals that the family keeps. The family lives in a secluded house surrounded by fields of garlic. A sign indicates that it is a research facility. Over dinner, Kent reveals that a plague has killed some of the garlic.

Later, another vampire comes to the house after smelling Eve. He reveals that humans have not existed nearly a hundred years. Kent, Bliss, and Stewart kill the vampire, but Avery still worries that more will come.

A few days later, a group of vampires arrive. EDGAR (Adult), their leader, states that they were sent from the nearby city in order to find food. Kent allows the vampires to feed on their animals and stay in their barn for the evening.

The next night, Avery and Kent find that their animals have been killed. They are attacked by the group of vampires, and Kent is killed. The other vampires enter the house...
