Menéndez, a former clergyman, resides in a somber and dilapidated flat, isolating himself from society. Plagued by a crisis of faith, he endures tormenting nightmares and is haunted by the sins of his past. One fateful day, an old acquaintance named Sebastián pays him a visit, possessing knowledge of Menéndez’s previous endeavors. Sebastián discloses that his daughter is believed to be possessed by a malevolent entity and implores Menéndez to perform an exorcism, fully aware of the priest’s forceful techniques.
Compelled by Sebastián’s persistence and his internal struggle, Menéndez seizes this opportunity as a means of seeking redemption. He embarks on a quest for a newfound purpose, but the question remains: Is the young woman truly possessed, or will she endure unwarranted torment?
