After purchasing an old box at a yard sale, a young girl, Em (Natasha Calis), is obsessed with opening it, although her father says it appears to have been designed not to open. Em begins to exhibit bizarre and violent behavior. Since her parents recently divorced, her initial actions go without much notice, but Em’s behavior soon becomes more and more extreme.
Fearing for their daughter, Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Kyra Sedgwick) make various attempts – from brain scans to consulting rabbis – to discover what the supernatural force behind the box is, what it wants, and how to keep it from destroying Em.
