Father John Sweeney, pastor of a small Catholic parish on Philadelphia's storied Main Line, is drawn into an apocalyptic vortex through the lives of parishioners Maggie Kealey, Michael Burns and Joe Delgado. Without warning they are ushered through the back door of the Revolution where they discover human embryos being created in laboratories and frozen in cryogenic freezers for a global black market. It is, however, when the Revolution's ultimate destination is revealed to one of the three that Fr. Sweeney is faced with his greatest test as a pastor - guiding a soul to the Christian accountability to truth even in the face of potentially deadly consequences.
