Portland, Oregon antique store owner Kevin Mannis buys an old wine box from the estate sale of a 103-year old Holocaust survivor in Portland, Oregon. The late woman's granddaughter tells him it is a ''Dybbuk Box" - containing an evil spirit - and warns him not to open it. Kevin can't resist opening the box, though. Inside is a strange collection of antique keepsakes. In opening the box, Kevin unleashes a malevolent spirit that wreaks havoc on his life and leaves his mother paralyzed by a stroke. Kevin sells the box on eBay to Sam, a university student. Soon Sam and his roommates are suffering the curse of the Dybbuk Box - everything electrical explodes, insects swarm into their home, and when Sam's hair falls out he becomes a terrified recluse. When he sells the box to a third owner Jason Haxton, the cursed box is soon up to its usual tricks, but this time Jason will not rest until he discovers the astonishing truth about the box's creation and the evil demon that lives inside.
