When debutante cousins, Dacia and Lou, travel to visit distant relatives in 1890’s Romania, they learn the dark truth of the connection between their family line, the Florescus, and the royal Draculas. For the girls, coming to terms with their lineage may mean following through with the dangerous obligations set upon them – or breaking away to form their own destinies.
