Lestat gives Louis the dark gift of immortality, but unlike Lestat, Louis has trouble embracing the idea of himself as a predator and tries to suppress his murderous urges. Eventually, the two turn a girl named Claudia to be their vampire daughter, and even more conflicts arise in their relationship. The film is framed as an interview Louis gives to a mortal reporter and shows Louis and Lestat's interactions and their dealings with Claudia and other immortals in extended flashbacks.
