The movie revolves around a group of four youngsters- Sean (Brendan Fehr), Nick (Kerr Smith), Megan (Izabella Miko), and Penelope (Phina Oruche).

During their journey, they encounter a hitchhiker (Johnathon Schaech) who tells them that he is looking for his missing sister who was last seen in the vicinity.

The movie takes a turn when the trio picks up another hitchhiker (Simon Rex), who is a vampire.

The group then meets a vampire hunter, Kit (Carrie Snodgress), who has dedicated her life to rid the world of vampires.
