As the construction get underway for the next commercial building in downtown St. Louis, the shovel of one of the construction workers clearing away dirt for the first stage hits an old stone cross and what looks like a wooden stake. Confused about what he has found, he puts it to the side. But the stake was removed from a body just below where the construction worker with digging. When it starts to rain, work is called off for the day and the workers leave the site.
As night falls the rain turns the earth to mud and suddenly Laura (Caitlin McIntosh), who has been asleep for 100 hundred years revives and climbs out of the ground. She has no idea where she is or who she is. She doesn’t remember her life as a vampire, all she knows is that her body is in pain and she is weak. She is unable to speak, but slowly seeks the help she needs to put the pieces of her past together.
It seems that Laura was from one of the most respected families in the city, had a good life in 1897 and was envied by many. But she fell into the clutches of the handsome Lazarus (Carlos Antonio León), a mysterious man who seduces her and brings her unwittingly into the world of vampires. But she was hunted down and laid to rest in the traditional way only to be freed by the construction worker. Now one hundred years later she is being tracked down again, this time by a vampire hunter employed by the church, Julian (Jason Contini).
After visiting the site where the cross and stake were found, Julian discovers the story behind Laura and begins the process of laying her to rest once again. But the priest in charge is not so sure that Julian’s methods are necessary; he believes that Laura may no longer be threat. Although Julian isn’t willing to take that chance he finds that the priest may know more than he is telling him when things begin to turn out differently than he expected.
