AT THE MERCY OF FAITH

A 14 year old preacher renounces his faith in God in the wake of a terrifying and traumatic encounter. 18 years later the psychopathic demons from his past, viciously returns to wreak havoc on his home - and to rip-out-his-soul - for the god of their hell.

After a disturbing encounter VIOLENTLY severed his previous strong faith, ex-preacher Marvin Tailor denounced the religious zeal of his youth, and his spirit is possessed with anger, resentment, and bitterness towards the God he once fervently worshipped. 18 years into his future, Marvin's focus and commitment is now on building up and nurturing his family with steadfast love, harmony, and righteous guidance. Unfortunately, just as it seems that he has found his peace and emotional balance... a REGURGITATED and VILE disturbance unfolds.

In what seems like a cruel and unsympathetic twist of fate - Marvin is again victimized by the same psychopathic demons responsible for his shattered youth. But this time - with the lives of his precious family dangling in the midst of his warfare with HELL - Marvin must stand on his feet and battle with all the strength and energy in his body to defeat the demonic wounds of his past... and recapture the trust, love, and respect of his broken home.
