In Leesburg, Virginia during the 1980s, Detective Roger Luby responds to the discovery of a carefully folded human skin in the garage of a military memorabilia collector.
Decades later, Luby stands in the Leesburg jail, confronted with two suicides and a skinned corpse. The three victims' connection to the prominent Charleroi family only complicates matters.
Young Sam Charleroi is the focal point in an ecclesiastic sex scandal. Tasked with Sam's exorcism, an unwilling Father Malveaux suspects the possession is merely a church smokescreen to discredit Sam's accusations, but the boy's case shows elements of true demonic activity.
As events unfold, secular and religious forces converge on the Charleroi estate. The disillusioned priest must confront his deepest doubts, hazarding his soul on his intuition and faith.
