Catherine Bomarzini and her best friend Gina have traveled to Catherine's family castle in Italy after her father's death. Once there, the two visit a local carnival, where Gina invites the head magician Lawrence and his crew to the castle for dinner. At the dinner Lawrence drugs both women and rapes Gina in front of his crew.

As the film progresses Catherine finds that both brothers are under a curse - they can only die at the hands of a loved one.
