Sister Ann (Jacqueline Byers) joins the Catholic Church’s fight to curb the rising number of demonic possessions. After opening a school to teach young priests how to perform exorcisms, her abilities to combat demons are recognised and, despite rules stating nuns aren’t allowed to take part in the practice, she’s authorized to perform exorcisms.
Alongside the young Father Dante (Christian Navarro), she’s tasked with saving the soul of a young girl who is seemingly possessed by the same demon that took Ann’s mother. Drawn into a battle against the demon, she soon realises the danger she’s in and that the devil wants to take hold of her too…
