Joan Mitchell is the wife of a businessman. They live in suburban Pittsburgh with their daughter Nikki, a college student. Joan is attractive, but unhappy and discontented with her housewife role. Her husband Jack is successful, but busy, domineering, and occasionally violent, embarking on long business trips every week. Joan has been seeing a psychotherapist, because of her recurring dreams about her husband controlling her. He makes repeated references to needing to "kick some ass" — a colleague's, his own child's, his wife's. Eventually, he strikes Joan in the face. Joan and her friends learn about a new woman in the neighborhood named Marion Hamilton, who is rumored to practice witchcraft. Prompted by curiosity, Joan and one of her friends drive over to Marion's house one night for a Tarot reading. It turns out that Marion is the leader of a local secret witches' coven.
