After demons steal the body of his son, a man discovers that he possesses the power to destroy them but to save himself and his family, he must fight the demons that have plagued him since childhood.
Eight-year old Oscar Renfro can see the demons that move in the darkness amongst us. Desperate to save his dying mother, he makes a deal with God through a street prophet. Oscar promises to use his ability and show the world that demons exist in exchange that God saves his dying mother’s life. Oscar is told that if he does what God needs him to do, the Almighty will save the one he loves.
His mother dies.
Twenty-five years later, now a husband and father, Oscar doubles up on Clozapine, a medication used in the treatment of schizophrenia, to cope with the demonic visions; struggles to hold his family together both emotionally and financially.
Oscar is fired from work after one of his visions causes an accident that all almost kills him and a customer.
While contemplating how to tell his wife Tracy he has been fired from another job, Oscar witnesses a dark figure slip into his three-year old son Brad’s bedroom. He follows it… finds the boy sitting motionless on the floor, toys untouched. Reaches for him… Brad whips around, bites at Oscar’s hand. Evil is in his son. Oscar falls back, narrowly misses the attack. Desperately lunges for his boy, grabs him tight. Black smoke burst from the boy’s mouth, shoots across the room, takes refuge in a dark shadow behind the bedroom door. Unwilling to go near the bedroom door, Oscar climbs out of the bedroom window and onto the roof. Oscar slips on a shingle, almost drops his son. Tracy finds them on the roof, helps them down.
Oscar forces his wife and son to leave the house, forces them away from him. He tells Tracy that he has lied about the medication working and they are no longer safe with him. Oscar’s life, his wife and son, leave him.
Broken and at the end of his rope, Oscar attempts to end his suffering… but he is pulled from deaths cold hands by THE MESSENGER, an angel sent by God. The Messenger helps Oscar understand why he can see demons and also tells him this is only the first stage of his power. Soon he will be able to rip demons from the bodies they’ve stolen. He offers Oscar the opportunity to fight against the beasts that have taken his life. Oscar chooses to fight.
Demons do the unthinkable and expose themselves in public places… melding with human flesh to attack Oscar. They expose themselves to fight against the one person who can expose them.
Guided by the Messenger, Oscar’s ability grows… attracting Lucifer, the devil. He wants to steal Oscar’s power. If he harnesses it, he will use it to tear the human soul from the body… destroying all of mankind.
Lucifer possesses the body of Oscar’s wife, forces Oscar to face him.
The Messenger tells Oscar that his gift isn’t strong enough to defeat the devil and he must believe in the promise that God, the Almighty, made to him when he was a child. He also tells Oscar, that when Lucifer took his wife’s body, her soul was destroyed, lost forever.
Demons by the multitude overtake Santa Monica Pier as Oscar faces off against Lucifer; wrapped in Tracy’s body.
