Bella awakens from her transformation from human to vampire, not only keenly aware of her new abilities, but also of changes within the coven as Jacob has imprinted on her child, Renesmee. It appears Charlie has been attempting to contact the Cullens for updates on Bella’s illness. They intend to tell him she didn’t survive, which requires that they move out of Forks, WA to protect their identities. Jacob, desperate not to lose Renesmee tells Charlie that his daughter is in fact alive and well, and transforms into a werewolf before Charlie.
Several months pass uneventfully, with Carlisle monitoring Renesmee’s rapid growth. On an outing in the woods, a bitter Irina sees Renesmee from a distance, as she catches a snowflake from a great height. Because of this, Irina believes Renesmee to be an ‘immortal child’ (a major violation of the Volturi laws, as ‘immortal children’ are changed too young to be taught or controlled), and immediately goes to the Volturi to report the Cullen coven. The ever-vigilant Alice has a vision that the Volturi are coming after Renesmee and warns the rest of the Cullens. Shortly after, Alice disappears with Jasper, leaving behind a short goodbye note.
As the Volturi gather their army, the Cullens gather witnesses to attest to Renesmee’s birth and half-human parentage. Although initially appalled and reluctant to associate themselves with an ‘immortal child’, many of the Cullen’s friends realize this is not the case and side with them upon meeting Renesmee. In their preparations for the Volturi’s arrival, it is discovered that Bella does in fact have an ability: a powerful mental shield, which she can extend to protect others with practice.
As some of their potential witnesses are attacked and prevented from coming to support the Cullens, Carlisle and Edward finally face the reality that they may have to fight the Volturi despite their efforts to do otherwise. Some witnesses hesitate, but ultimately agree to stand with them in battle.
The Volturi arrive, led by Aro, who is eager to obtain the gifted members of the Cullen coven as part of his guard. Although Aro is persuaded that Renesmee is not an ‘immortal child’, he still believes she poses a risk. Alice and Jasper appear to attest to the existence of other children like Renesmee, and realize Aro won’t change his decision. Chaos breaks out and a battle ensues. Both sides undergo heavy casualties, but the Volturi lose and Aro is killed by Bella and Edward. However, it was revealed to be Alice’s vision that Aro saw. Ultimately, two more witnesses arrive: a fully grown vampire-human hybrid and his aunt, proving Renesmee is not a threat. In the end, Aro and his guards decide to retreat for the sake of self-preservation.
Back at the Cullen home, Alice gives us a glimpse into the future: Edward and Bella together with Jacob and a fully matured Renesmee. Edward reads Alice’s mind and feels happy that Renesmee has Jacob to protect her. Alone in the meadow, Bella finally allows Edward a peek into her thoughts and as the final lines of the novel says, “And then we continued blissfully into this small but perfect piece of our forever.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Twilight_Saga:_Breaking_Dawn_%E2%80%93_Part_2)

Points to Critique
The edited face of the baby for me is a little bit off.
There is an effect where Edward chases Bella, and that is not a good thing. Effect at that point is a little bit off.
