When residents in a highly-religious small town have horrible near-death experiences and wake up with burnt skin, they believe they went to hell and that God has abandoned them. Matters get worse when a local Satanic cult emerges and wins over many residents. Will Chantress be able to stop Kyle, the antichrist, from destroying the world's religions?
