A young guy Kyle Barnes, whom all the neighbors are afraid of, lives in a small town located in West Virginia. Kyle’s notoriety is due to the fact that there are rumors in the city that he is a man possessed by dark forces – by the way, Barnes himself believes so.

One day, the protagonist helps Reverend John Anderson, a local priest, in a ritual of casting out demons that a boy named Joshua is possessed by. Since then, the exorcist has been using Kyle’s help frequently. However, Barnes himself dreams of a normal life for an ordinary person.
