While excavating a new business site, heavy equipment operator Doug Stone scrapes a strange object with his earth moving bucket. Dr. Alicia Evans from the University is called in and during excavation, discovers that this extraordinary liquid copper box has a mysterious and nefarious history. Staying late that night to lock up, Doug is irrevocably drawn back to the dig site by a forceful power he can’t explain. Freeing the strange object from the hard dirt, he discovers two unusual keys and opens the box. Initially disappointed at finding a black onyx stone, Doug soon finds that this rock contains properties like no other. Once touched, it passes on a piece of itself; something only rare minerals possess – eternal life. But once blessed with this new power, the recipient soon finds that it may not be a blessing at all.
