Local Witch Agnes and her vegetable companions’ peaceful lives are thrown into unease when a vampire moves in nearby! And only one vegetable can face him: poor anxiety-ridden Garlic! Garlic is tasked with confronting this vampire in order to help her friends, and her journey becomes one of finding her courage and discovering that people we don't know are not always as terrifying as our anxiety tells us.
