Angela Holmes (Olivia Taylor Dudley) was an average 27 year old woman with bright aspirations for her future. She was in a loving relationship with her long-time boyfriend Pete (John Patrick Amedori). She, like all, felt curious about religion and the myths and legends that bind them.

On Angela’s birthday she has a simple everyday accident, but little does she know that this accident will change her life forever.

Angela soon ends up in hospital with a serious infection. To the local Priest, Father Lozano (Michael Peña), her father Roger (Dougray Scott), the hospital staff and her boyfriend Pete; she seem quite normal, well as normal as any ill person, but little do they all know that Angela is the host of possibly the greatest demon of all time and it will not let her go.

As Angela recovers from a coma, she starts to show signs of mental illness and is transferred to a psychiatric ward for closer observation, but strange things are starting to happen and Angela at the centre of it all.

With her erratic change of emotions and the strange happenings surrounding her, she attracted the attention of the Vatican. Cardinal Bruun (Peter Andersson) is tasked with the holy duty to perform the exorcism and help Angela get her life back, but what he doesn’t know will most definitely hurt him.

This film is most definitely your typical demonic horror/thriller, but never have they used a mighty demon as a character.
