Chris has problems, serious problems for such a young man. His parents have announced that they will divorce as soon as he and his brother are out and on their own. He has a crush on a girl that he finds it impossible to talk to. His big brother treats him like a jerk, and to round it all off, puberty is turning him into a vampire. He meets a Celestial Being who asks for his help destroying the old vampire trapped under the nearby lake. The Celestial Being promises to cure Chris of vampirism, which is what Chris wants more than anything. Chris agrees but rapidly finds himself in way over his head. Chris and the Being successfully rid the town of the demon in the lake, but success doesn't bring the results Chris was counting on.
