The Simms and their young daughter Mary arrive at an antique store owned by Lewis Vendredi. He is busy going through a manifest when the couple comes in. He tells them that the shop is closed and reluctantly lets them browse. They leave their daughter to stand while they look around, but Mary soon starts playing with the antiques. Her stepmother, Irene, tries to stop her and Mary points out she isn't her real mother. Once her parents leave her, Mary looks around and notices an antique doll, and is enchanted. She picks it up and sneaks out of the store with it. In the alleyway, the doll comes to life, says it is Vita, and say they'll be the best of friends. Two teenagers come over, and the doll tells Mary she can have whatever she wants. It then leaps at one of the teenagers and scratches his throat...
