In this psychological horror prequel to the classic Omen films, a young American woman is sent to Rome to begin a life of service to the church.

The film is directed by Arkasha Stevenson based on characters created by David Seltzer (The Omen), with a story by Ben Jacoby (Bleed) and a screenplay by Tim Smith & Arkasha Stevenson and Keith Thomas (Firestarter).
