Cailean has been giving into a demon of her own since she was a small girl, a voice within her that brings out the worst version of herself while also destroying the lives of everyone around her. Cailean tries to fight back, controlling her addiction and becoming a more responsible parent. However, this force within her is far more powerful than she can handle and her erratic behavior eventually leads her into death's domain. Finding herself at death's door, she faces 'Sariel', the Angel of Death. He serves as guide, jury and judge, a wry and tired elemental spirit charged with guiding souls through the underworld. In limbo her trial begins as well as her exorcism. Sariel confronts her with horrendous truths about her past and present, he needs to free her will as he too is looking to get rid of the overwhelming burden he's been carrying with for centuries.

Good film
9 September 2018 | by metmorphosesSee all my reviews

Enjoyed this film. Great to see passion in an independent production. Suspense of the driven mind where all can collapse one step at a time.
