In an apocalyptic thriller, Father Peter Carenza learns that his extraordinary and seemingly miraculous powers to both heal and kill are the result of a Vatican-orchestrated scientific project to create the next Messiah, and becomes the center of a religious upheaval as he begins his own journey across America in a bitter confrontation with organized religion.
