Based on the true story of Gabriele Amorth
Amorth was a famous exorcist who entered the priesthood in the 1950s and was responsible for solving thousands of cases for nearly four decades. Before his death in 2016, he founded the International Association of Exorcists. In spite of the skepticism surrounding Amorth's work, he documented everything and the movie explores one of the most compelling and memorable cases the exorcist ever dealt with.
