Church officials claim demons possess Sam Charleroi, but Father
Robert Malveaux isn't convinced. The disillusioned church lawyer

ecclesiastic sex-abuse scandal. To Malveaux's mind, Sam's
"possession" is nothing more than psychological trauma, coupled
with the stress of his parents' divorce and preexisting mental
illness. Elderly, spiritually sensitive Mae Etta doesn't share
Malveaux's certainty. She remembers her childhood friend Harold's
death, his bloodless skin left carefully folded. Now Sam seems
connected to Harold's spirit, and a skinned corpse lies in the
local jail, the remains of a guest arrested at the Charleroi
