A home invasion leaves Liza (Katie Holmes) with a head injury and her son Jude (Christopher Convery) traumatized and silent for months. Along with Sean (Owain Yeoman), Liza's husband and Jude's father, they move across country to the Heelshires' property. While exploring the woods, Jude finds a porcelain doll buried in a shallow grave in the ground and dusts off the dirt before deciding to take him home. Liza and Sean believe he is using the doll to express his feelings but it becomes more sinister with the doll laying down his rules. Jude becomes withdrawn in his room, carrying the doll with him wherever he goes.
The parents soon learn the evil history of the doll, with all the killings and suicides. More unusual incidents happen, like the dining room table collapsing when Jude warns his mother not to make the doll angry. Liza also sees horrific and violent drawings in Jude's notepad. Jude's Uncle Liam (Oliver Rice), Aunt Mary (Joely Collins), cousins Will (Keoni Rebeiro) and Sophie (Daphne Hoskins) visit. Jude, Will and Sophie go play outside and Will starts taunting Jude about both his psychological issues and the doll. As the two boys get into a fight, Will falls backwards and impales himself onto a broken croquet peg. After the badly injured boy is rushed to the hospital, Groundskeeper Joseph (Ralph Ineson) enters the house, aiming a shotgun at Liza.
He begins telling the story of how Brahms asked him to put him back together, making Jude an easy target for the doll as he was not strong-willed. He then tells her that Brahms will take Jude away forever. Liza attacks Joseph with the shotgun, before beginning to search for her son. She goes into the basement and finds Jude in a trance-like state, ready to sacrifice himself with the doll. Liza manages to convince Jude that they will take Brahms home and become a family, without seeing Sean come in and break Brahms' head with a croquet mallet before Joseph comes running in. Brahms' head shatters, revealing a demonic doll underneath, more sinister than the porcelain innocent face. Brahms then kills Joseph without hesitation.
