Simon lives for two things: his dream of becoming an acclaimed actor, and his love for Sarah, his twelve-year old daughter he only gets to see on the weekends. Unfortunately, as his ex-wife Emily often points out, his career is stagnating, and Nathan, his best friend turned agent, isn’t trying that hard to help him. So, when Simon is offered a chance to audition for the role of a man possessed by a demon, he decides to go the distance, hoping that the success it will bring will make him a hero once again in the eyes of his daughter.

But what begins as light-hearted research into demonology soon turns into a nightmare when the character he develops begins to take over and the lines between acting and reality become blurred. Soon, Simon loses all control and nobody in his life is safe. When you deal with the devil there are no second takes
