Brief Summary

Years after watching his mother die at the hands of a cult lead by his father (Dr, Hass), Ciro returns to his hometown to make right with his haunting past.

Full Description

Ciro spends most of his childhood in a wheelchair, in a town where his father, Doctor Hass, leads a sinister cult. Being the first born male, Ciro is destined to take the place of his father as their prophet, but when he finds out that the illness that keeps him crippled is caused by his father’s “medicines” (the same that killed his mother), he escapes with the help of Moroni, the doctor’s right-hand man, who isn’t happy with the doctor’s abuse of his self-anointed power. Having entered adulthood, Ciro returns for his mother’s coffin, wanting to fulfill her dying wish; to be buried in her home town. When trying to escape once again, the armed guard of his father, “The league of the Just”, follows him and murders the foster family that took him in when he was younger. To end this cycle of fear and abuse, Ciro has no choice but to return to try and cure the sick town his father built.
