A recurrent, unidentifiable noise in her apartment. A memo to her
boss that''s replaced by obscene insults. Amanda-a successful
architect in a happy marriage-finds her life going off kilter by
degrees. She starts smoking again, and one night for no reason,
without even the knowledge that she''s doing it, she burns her
husband with a cigarette. At night she dreams of a beautiful woman
with pointed teeth on the shore of a blood-red sea.
The new voice in Amanda''s head, the one that tells her to steal
things and talk to strange men in bars, is strange and frightening,
and Amanda struggles to wrest back control of her life. A book on
demon possession suggests that the figure on the shore could be the
demon Naamah, known to scholars of the Kabbalah as the second wife
of Adam, who stole into his dreams and tricked him into fathering
her child. Whatever the case, as the violence of her erratic
behavior increases, Amanda knows that she must act to put her life
right, or see it destroyed.
