Silvania and Dakaria are twins and twelve years old. But not only that. They are half-vampires because their more than 2000 years old father Mihai is a vampire. Their mother Elvira is a "normal" woman and comes from Germany. She would like to return there, so the whole family leave their home in Transylvania and move to the narrow-minded village of Bindburg, where the sisters have to conceal their vampire traits and adapt themselves to everyday human life. From now on, flying through the air is only allowed at night. Running along the ceiling is entirely forbidden, as well as eating insects. This is no problem for Silvania. She is happy to finally enjoy the life of human beings, wearing colourful clothes and maybe meeting nice guys. Dakaria, on the contrary, wishes herself back to Transylvania, for she loves being a vampire with heart and soul and does not to give up her habits. So the sisters’ very first school day is quite exciting and the beginning of a great adventure. The film is based on the eponymous best-selling children’s books by Franziska Gehm, which have been translated into over 20 languages.
