It's an awkward teenage girl's first day at school. She doesn't fit in and is looked down upon by her classmates. While they were walking down a corridor, the girl reveals she is a vampire. She chases after them, they try to open a door but are unsuccessful, and end up running outside of the school. She kills them off one by one.
The film ends with her staring into the camera before it zooms into her face and fades to black after she screams.
The film was a high school film project being funded and produced by Esher Church of England High School. Six students were taking part. The film was made to acknowledge and accolade the silent film era, especially by the utilization of close-ups, sizably voluminous gestures and the utilization of music.
The budget was around £1,000. The film was filmed in 1080p with a panavision camera and edited with Sony Vegas.
It was directed by Mathew Bearne, and the camera work was done by his daughter Mia Bearne.

The story could be hard to follow for some, and although the overall acting was decent some the actors could've done better. The music was also kinda bland".
