Five cousins gather an old dark house to compete for a massive inheritance, only to find that winning it may be murder as occult secrets and supernatural occurrences cast a dark shadow over the grim proceedings. Summoned to the sprawling family estate by their mysterious Uncle Melvin (Keith David), cousins Karen (Golden Brooks), Henry (D.B. Woodside), Tyrone (Darrin Dweitt Henson) Lily (Rochelle Aytes) and Simpson (Shawn Michael Howard) learn that they are all heir to a vast fortune that has been hidden away since the days of slavery. Back then, tradition was paramount. And though the family has long since been shattered, breaking family custom can still yield dire consequences. Later, as evening gives way to night, Aunt Felicia (Adriane Lenox) shows up to expose the family's occult roots, and deliver a dire prophecy about events that will soon come to pass. Now, as the secrets of their ancestors are dragged screaming into the light, the five cousins who dreamt of untold riches will discover just how much their ancestors were willing to sacrifice in order to secure their freedom.
