Director Roger McLeod draws on the biblical mythology of the Nephilim to tell this ominous tale of a young graduate student who wages a bloody struggle against his mystical past. Charles Wilcox III is going crazy. A dedicated student of religion and philosophy, Charles is completely unaware that the blood of the Nephilim flows through his veins. The Nephilim were the unholy union of angel and man, a dark breed that many assumed were long extinct. Charles' father took this dark secret to his grave, and now his son will pay the ultimate price. If Charles does not receive the secret information that is available only from other descendants of the Nephilim, he will experience a slow and grueling descent into insanity. As his mind begins to disintegrate, Charles loses all interest in his studies while cutting his ties to family and friends. When three dead girls appear before Charles to deliver a foreboding warning from his deceased father, Charles' girlfriend, Hana, and best friend, Logan, discover that old myths can still have a nightmarish impact on current events.
