dyb·buk – noun (in Jewish folklore) a malevolent wandering spirit that enters and possesses the body of a living person until exorcized.

When a young Hasid named Chonen uses dark spiritual forces to thwart the wedding plans of his true love Leah, her body becomes possessed. Jewish law and spiritual law are at odds in this Kabbalistic ghost story that tackles the meaning of death.​​​
