Hal Dillon collects strange pieces of art — odd paintings and drawings, quirky sculptures. When he stumbles upon the bizarre crucifix in a curio shop, he decides to take it home and add it to his collection.
On the wooden cross is a hideous figure of Christ — it looks angry and hateful, and its teeth have been filed down to sharp points. But this piece is unlike anything else in Hal's collection. It behaves in very un-Christ-like ways, and turns Hal's life into a living nightmare.
