In 1976 Virginia, a struggling suburban couple are faced with a mysterious box left at their door: press the button inside and they'll receive one million dollars, but someone they don't know will die. Moody, disquieting horror mystery straight out of The Twilight Zone; occasionally trips on the sense of its own importance but is so expertly staged and cleverly put together as to be clearly the work of a true talent.
