After six year old Sophie is orphaned, guardianship is assigned to her estranged aunt Annabelle, a single, professional with no experience raising a child. When the two move into a large, eerie Victorian house with a once impressive garden Sophie unearths a locked wooden box with a mysterious symbol carved into the top. In an attempt to find a way to connect with and please her niece, Annabelle uses tools to pry the lock on the box open, revealing a beautiful music box yet unknowingly opening the door to something sinister. Annabelle and Sophie soon discover that the music box is possessed by an evil spirit that will soon try to destroy them both.
