After being brought back from near-death by Edward (Pattinson) after childbirth, Bella (Stewart) begins her new life as a vampire and mother to their daughter Renesmee (Foy). But when Irina (Grace), a member of the Denali coven, misidentifies Renesmee as a immortal child, a human infant who has been bitten and transformed into a vampire, to the Volturi, they set out to battle and destroy the Cullens for their betrayal. In a final attempt to survive, the Cullens begin to gather foreign Vampire clans and nomads to stand and witness against the Volturi, including the Denali, the Amazonian, the Egyptian, the Irish, and Romanian Covens, European and American nomads. With their allies, the Cullens and the Wolf Pack stand to prove their innocence to the Volturi once and for all.
