Bella feels a special fascination with Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), but her new classmate keeps her distance. In fact, the attraction he feels for her is overwhelming and he fears that his self-control is not enough to dominate his vampiric instincts. Bella is the soul mate who has been looking for 90 years, but her scent threatens to plunge her into an unstoppable frenzy to feed herself.
Unable to resist spending time with Bella, Edward reveals his secret in the hope of driving her away, but only manages to make the teenager more enamored of him. Soon, the young couple is inseparable and Edward’s internal struggle intensifies with Bella’s eager desire to become one of them.
As Bella discovers Edward’s world, she throws herself headlong into an exciting and terrifying romance, which catches the attention of a group of nomadic vampires who do not have the same scruples as the Cullens about human blood and decide to turn it into their next victim.
