A 'thriller' of the evils of cigarette smoking, set in a Gothic boudoir. A young woman lights up one cigarette after another. The clock strikes twelve, wind from the balcony door blows out the candles and a vampire stands in the doorway. As he approaches her, she still finds time to light up another cigarette. The vampire bends over the woman to find nourishment and, as he backs away, he gasps his last breath amidst a puff of smoke. A clever statement on an important problem.
