In this romantic, sophisticated Canadian horror spoof, a family of Transylvanian vampires experiences turmoil when a daughter rebels against her arranged marriage to a Russian bloodsucker. Sick to death of bickering with her parents, Karmina, decides to fly to Montreal to find her estranged aunt Esmerelda, who has found a formula that enables her to function as a human and run a successful dating service. Esmerelda is happy to share the potion with her newfound niece. Karmina then tries to adjust to life as a mortal. Her jilted lover shows up and his determined pursuit hinders her progress. Matters get really sticky when Karmina falls in love with handsome Phillipe, a talented musician.
