Isolated from the outside world, fifteen-year-old Lara (Hannah Rae of Broadchurch, Fighting with My Family) lives in seclusion on a vast country estate with her father and strict governess Miss Fontaine (Jessica Raine of Patrick Melrose, Jericho). Late one evening, a mysterious carriage crash brings a young girl (Devrim Lingnau) into their home to recuperate. Lara immediately becomes enchanted by this strange visitor who arouses her curiosity and awakens her burgeoning desires.

This atmospheric coming-of-age tale, also co-starring Golden Globe-nominee Tobias Menzies (Outlander, The Terror, Game of Thrones, The Crown) is inspired by the 1872 gothic novella by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, who crafted the story of Carmilla 25 years before Bram Stoker put the supernatural story of Count Dracula on the page.
