Set in New York City, this drama revolves around a police psychologist fighting to save his family from the evil workings of an ancient religion, while he also attempts to solve a series of ritualistic child murders.
While investigating a series of brutal murders, a psychiatrist for the NYPD uncovers and becomes interested in a dark religious cult, the members of which (the "Believers") use children as human sacrifices. But the psychiatrist soon realizes he must extricate himself from the grip of the Believers and its rituals -- before his own son becomes the next to be sacrificed.
