Plot Summary

The film begins with a voice-over narration by Tom (Brian Ceponis), who introduces himself as the father of three daughters: Sarah (Paige Handler), Olivia (Sylvia Panacione), and Jenny (Ilana Turner). He says that they have been living in isolation for a long time, and that he has been protecting them from the evil world outside. He also says that he has given them a gift: a crucifix that grants them one wish each, but with a curse attached to it.

The film then shows the wishes and curses of each daughter, as well as Tom's own wish and curse. Sarah wishes to be beautiful, but becomes blind. Olivia wishes to be smart, but loses her memory. Jenny wishes to be free, but becomes paralyzed. Tom wishes to be young, but becomes impotent. The film also reveals that Tom has been sexually abusing his daughters, and that they have developed incestuous feelings for him and each other.

The film ends with a twist: the voice-over narration was actually by Father (David Schroeder), who is Tom's father and the grandfather of the daughters. He says that he was the one who gave them the crucifix, and that he has been watching them from a hidden room. He also says that he has another gift for them: a gun with one bullet. He then leaves the gun on a table and walks away, leaving the fate of the family ambiguous.
