La vie semble sourire à Violet Jones, une jeune femme qui, a priori, a tout réussi : elle travaille dans le monde de la publicité et a un petit ami, jeune interne en médecine ambitieux et séduisant. La quête de perfection, qui constitue le thème fondamental du film, a ses origines dans le rapport qu'entretient Violet avec sa mère depuis son enfance : elles sont à la fois complices et prisonnières dans un rôle de princesses. En effet, la mère lisse inlassablement la chevelure de sa fille; signe de perfection, le lissage est, pour Violet et sa mère, un impératif qui conditionne leur quotidien. Jamais de laisser-aller ou de désinvolture; Violet, angoissée, affiche un éternel sourire, et prévoit tout, anticipe tout... jusqu'aux fiançailles auxquelles elle s'attend dur comme fer, ayant trouvé dans un placard une petite boîte cadeau qui ressemble fort à ce qui cacherait la bague tant désirée...C'était sans compter le destin qui, au détour d'un malencontreux arrosage, va faire basculer la vie de Violet et remettre en question ses certitudes; sa recherche d'une élégance irréprochable va stopper net, et ce sera pour elle l'occasion de faire une belle rencontre... celle avec elle-même.

A professor, Mike Cole (Nicolas Cage) frantically searches for his son who was abducted during a Halloween parade. Next year when the parents are still looking for their son and starting to hear and see their son reaching out to them from the other world--the Professor sees his son on a passing bus, but upon chasing the bus down and gaining access, his son is not there. He disembarks and notices spray painted on a building, "pay the ghost," the phrase his son uttered before vanishing. He enters the building and finds homeless people living there. Unearthly screams of a woman are heard, and a blind homeless man calls for the others to mask their fires, explaining to Mike that the screams are heard every year before Halloween. Mike asks about the phrase, and is taken to a wall with more of the same phrases written on it. Engrossed by the wall and the homeless man, he does not notice the wall behind him shift into another world, and a demonic figure briefly appears behind him, then vanishes. The homeless man explains nothing, but quickly tells Mike to leave.
