A Mother and Daughter paranormal team, Ann and Kim Slater return home to New England from vacationing in New Orleans. With them is a mysterious bag they purchased in an Odds and Ends shop while on vacation. The Daughter, Kim, was attracted to the appearance of the bag she seemed drawn to. She convinced her mother to buy the Ghost Bag as she called it.
Now home, the two are set to relax but Kim has the idea to boost their online following by conducting a live opening of the bag right now to stay in the atmosphere of authenticity. Reluctantly Ann agrees and the show is on. The tattered wicker bag is covered with dated postage stamps and old brown colored wax.
Slowly, the bag is stripped of its seals in front of the camera. Immediately after the wax seal is broken a strange liquid runs from the bag down the table toward the patio door.
Wild with excitement, the two giddy occultists have succeeded in catching the event with their cameras. Before they can celebrate Chrissi, a young neighbor informs them she needs more pizza for her new friend, Shaka. When they press her, she tells them Shaka is a giant rat in the other room with her. Concerned, they send Chrissi home for the night.
Upon arrival, Sybil, Ann's sister, finds Ann’s home empty and locked-up. When she visits Ann’s friend and neighbor, she finds Monica hostile and wants nothing to do with the Slater Family. Perplexed, Sybil is allowed in the home by Monica’s Pastor, Nathaniel Willoughby, who is accompanied by an assistant, Minister Vincent Toronado. The Minister explains that in her occult practices, Ann seems to have released a powerful demonic presence, now affecting Monica’s daughter Chrissi, and the rest of the neighborhood.
Sybil’s ex-husband. Detective Don Gardner arrives and together they go over and force entry into Ann’s home. There they find the bag but are prevented from reaching it by the entity Shaka, who nearly kills them.
Using his ties to Law Enforcement, Don and Sybil make their way to New Orleans in time to get Ann and Kim to the hospital. They learn the bag's origin is in South Carolina, and head there. They fail to convince Sheriff Hicks to take them to Granny Snow as she is known, an aged Native American woman, but soon find they are summoned by Granny herself, when little a girl, Addie Yates, is sent to fetch them.
They remain with Granny for two days as she explains Shaka is a powerful African Djinn, that devours souls, and she will NOT help them.
Shaka visits Granny and steals a valuable item from her and forces her to help her out-of-town visitors. Granny leaves her Hollow the first time in ages and travels to CT to retrieve the bag and Shaka. The ending has a surprising twist and the story is formatted to easily evolve into a series.
