When an aspiring actress from the Hawaiian Islands moves to the mainland in order to study drama, a malicious prank gone horribly awry sets the stage for terror in director Ron Ford's mythologically-infused frightener. Hawaiian born and bread, Amy has come to the realization that in order to truly refine her skills as an actress she'll have to move to the mainland. Unfortunately a closed-minded group of vicious co-eds have made it their goal to make Amy's higher education a living hell. When Amy is left brain dead as a result of a malevolent practical joke, her loving aunt Maelea sets out to find the truth about the grim fate that befell her niece. Maelea isn't about to let a bad deed go unpunished either, because when she learns that her niece has fallen victim to the cruelest kind of prank imaginable, she captures the young girl's vengeful spirit in a special tiki doll that springs to life and sets out to track down Amy's tormentors for some gruesome supernatural payback.
