The couple decide to adopt a child, and settle on a Russian girl who is pretty, charming and talented. However, as she settles in to her new family and school, it becomes apparant that she is not all she appears to be, and has a decidely evil streak... which the parents have trouble coming to terms with, even as their other children are increasingly at risk.
