In the near future, thanks to the Japanese invention of synthetic blood, vampires have "come out of the coffin" and are trying to peacefully co-exist with humanity. When a vampire moves into the small Louisiana town of Bon Temps, the tolerance of the locals is put to the test. Local waitress Sookie Stackhouse, unusual in her own right because she can read minds, finds herself drawn to the stranger whose mind is hidden from her.
