A puppet master lies dying in his bed. This is no ordinary death bed, as screams of terror erupt from him, surrounded by ghosts, which await his death. We later find out that his death was a result of a curse - a curse brought about by the improper ownership of ancient Thai puppets. The puppets belong to their proper master, and whosoever claims these puppets will suffer a horrible death.

The puppets are stolen, and the curse lands on the head of an oblivious Thai puppet troupe. They see great promise in the puppets, yet violence and destruction rains down upon them.
