In the eternal battle between good and evil, some men don't have a choice. More
Death nearly had him, once, then again. After a third, freakish near miss, Daniel really begins to worry. As if these harrowing instances were not enough, he has begun to see things; things that apparently were there all along, just beyond his ability to witness. With each strange, sometimes horrific sighting, what has begun to feel like a curse gets stronger and begins to attract every sort of unearthly being imaginable… many with one inexplicable desire: his destruction.
Life had been unremarkable, quiet. Rather introverted, perhaps a bit insecure, young Daniel Gabriel lived alone in the little cottage he’d share with his mother before her early death. Lonely, with no girlfriend or prospects, his habitual angst and self-doubt were ameliorated by the one thing he clung to as a positive in his life: his job as a Lineman. But when things begin to unravel, this became small comfort.
Everything changed the night of the big summer storm. The thrill of working his first big weather event as a journeyman was quickly quelled, when through the driving rain, Daniel catches a glimpse of something loping across the arc of his spotlight. It was mannish, but too big and thick. This was unnerving enough, but his body reacted to the sight in a weird way he’d not felt before: tingles, shivers and a wild churn in his belly. Minutes later, he finds his old friend and mentor, killed, horribly electrocuted. The grisly sight would haunt him to the end of his days.
But this trauma is only the beginning of Daniel’s troubles. One freakish accident follows another; his coworkers begin to shun him. But far worse, he begins to see people and things he shouldn’t, that no one else can see: the dead who’ve not departed, and worse. Soon after, his childhood friend goes on a shooting rampage, but his eyes glowed red and he speaks in a host of voices (seen and heard only by Daniel). Daniel is forced to shoot him dead, becoming both hero and outcast.
The Lineman is nearing the end of his rope, when he is approached by an exotic beauty who offers him a way out that would lead to the course to his salvation. She proves to be one more piece in the puzzle that has become his life and would provide the path to the answer of Daniel’s own, mysterious lineage. This answer is not what any man could expect.
When Daniel is caught working another wild, unnatural storm he is forced into a final confrontation with the forces out to destroy him. In the final moments, an unlooked-for messenger delivering all the answers he’s so desperately sought allows his salvation.
