Plot Summary
Summary When his ex-wife complains that he doesn't spend enough time with his family, radio psychiatrist Dr. Jack Black decides to take his children on holiday. They go to Glenorky, a Canadian resort with a special feature -- according to local legend, a creature named Orky lives in its lake. Jack's unhappy daughter Ashley becomes friendly with the monster who offers her some respite from her troubles. Then Jack gets a bump on the head, and he's instantly transformed into a kinder, sweeter dad. Could he be possessed by the spirit of Orky?
