Plot

Two hundred years ago, a group of doctors learned to extended their lives by draining the vitality of others. Without such tranfusions, they begin to petrify. They become the staff doctors of a girls' reform school, assuring a supply of vital young bodies. However, outsiders sent to the school, Dr. Jess Rogers and social worker Carol Adams, become suspicious of the unusual number of otherwise healthy inmates dying of heart failure or suicide.
