                  Inspired by director Jacques Tourneur's 1943 classic "I Walked with a Zombie," this new offering explores the mystical and sensual, yet often times terrifying world of Voodoo spirituality. A dedicated oncologist, Dr. Alice Dodgson (Grey), must compromise her strict belief in western medicine when she encounters the mysterious Obeah culture on the Caribbean island of Jamaica. Hired by wealthy American Paul Clayborne (Sheffer), Alice travels to the exotic locale to treat a cancer patient, Paul's brother Wesley (Lapaine). Upon her arrival, Alice finds herself immersed in the rhythm and harmony of this foreign civilization. Immediately, Alice is besieged by the locals with tales of zombies and possession. Though she dismisses the fantastical yarns as tropical ghost stories, what she is about to experience will change her point of view. Gradually, Alice learns about the magical and musical native culture while she attempts to treat the despondent Wesley with her proven scientific methods. Wesley reluctantly buys into Alice's enduring optimism. Making her job much more difficult, the emotional attachment that Alice and Wesley share as doctor and patient gradually develops into stronger feelings of love and desire. Alice finally comes to the realization that Wesley is not only suffering from a unique strand of cancer, but is also a victim of a powerful Voodoo Priest! Her first move is to figure out who on the island wants Wesley dead, and why. Alice must ultimately submit to the strange and sensual native culture to save her beloved Wesley's life, facing off against a seductive Voodoo queen as she fights fire with fire.
