A recently divorced father's (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) youngest daughter becomes mysteriously connected to an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. As his daughter's behavior becomes more and more erratic, Clyde feels a dark presence beginning to build and knows it's associated with the arrival of the box.

Unexplained and unfortunate episodes begin to mount as Clyde finally deciphers the strange carvings on the antique to discover that the box was built to contain a dibbuk; a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host.

Now, as the dibbuk takes a stronger and more frightening hold on his young daughter, Clyde races against the clock to find an expert who can remove the dibbuk and save her before it devours her forever.

Inspired by the Los Angeles Times article "Jinx in a Box" written by Leslie Gornstein.
