Claire (Renee Willner) goes to see her family living in a squalid farm after 18 months with her boyfriend Paul (Danny Alder). When Claire arrives, she brings with her a mysterious vase containing specific instructions. Living on the farm are her father Bill (Peter Stratford), her younger sister Jen (Taryn Eva) and her old grandmother Nana (Dawn Klingberg) who is about to pass away after a long illness. She starts speaking to Claire about a strange woman known as "The Banshee" (Bridget Neval) that will take care of her after the death. At first, Claire thinks that her grandmother is raving, but afterwards she starts hearing piercing screams and a female figure enters in their house, walking towards Nana's room. Claire learns that the Banshee actually exists, and has to fight against this female ghost and her spirits wanting to damn the entire family.
