One day, one of Ariel’s schemes goes wrong, and Manon finds herself an unwilling accomplice. When the most gruesome murders begin piling up around them, tracing a bloody trail to a satanic sect, Police Captain Raynal takes an interest in their case. Thus begins a hunt that will blur the lines between allies and predators and put blood ties to the test.
