One of the most sensational cases from their files, it starts with a fight for the soul of a young boy, then takes them beyond anything they’d ever seen before, to mark the first time in U.S. history that a murder suspect would claim demonic possession as a defense.”

The cast also includes Ruairi O’Connor, Sarah Catherine Hook, and Julian Hilliard.
