When another priest is murdered before Sunday mass, special agents Tony Black and Benjamin Rice are called in to investigate. The killer calls himself the Redeemer, and he's on a mission to clean up the church. With the authorities close on his heels, the Redeemer decides to eliminate agent Black and those closest to him. In the process, Tony's life is changed forever, and the Redeemer's ultimate goal is revealed. Pray for mercy. God forgives, but the Redeemer doesn't.
