At an archeological dig in Israel, the restless spirit of the witch Tamar escapes the urn in which it has been imprisoned for 400 years – a practitioner of  Kabbalist black magic.  She has found the one vessel through which she can regain her malign powers – the virgin child-woman Leah who has accompanied her father on the dig.  But there is one force Tamar must destroy – a modern day warlock armed with the one weapon that can stop her.
