Unsuspecting Justine (Garance Marillier) enrolls into veterinary school without the slightest idea that she'd graduate as a fully-fledged carnivore with an insatiable desire for human flesh.

Before she knows it Justine has bitten off more than she can chew, and will soon face the terrible consequences of her actions as her true self begins to emerge.
