While away at camp, two friends find a mystical sculpture in a shrine in the woods, and one decides to take the relic home with them. It turns out that the figurine taken from the shrine is from the Yoruba goddess Araomire, and it will bestow seven years of good luck to whoever possesses it, with seven years of bad luck to follow.
