In the year 2000, college student Alex Roivas is called back to her grandfather's mansion when she discovers he has been horribly murdered. During her search for answers, she comes across the Tome of Eternal Darkness, a demonic book that describes the fate of all those who came across it. The tale begins in 33 B.C., when Roman General Pious Augustus sold his soul to an elder god.
