Johnny Seth, an atheist junior high school student, is awaiting judgment after his death, but after Satan has a conversation with God, he brings Johnny back to earth... but not as a human, rather a superhuman. He can't remember anything about his past life except that his name was Johnny Seth, but when he's confronted by 3 demons named Jacob, Martin, and Aaron, they tell him that he has to follow Satan's orders since he was the one who talked to God and helped bring Johnny back to Earth, but things don't go as planned when SVF runs into a young sophomore named Veronica DeVille and she connects with him.

PG-13 for sequences of bloody action horror violence and gore, disturbing images, thematic elements, strong language and brief suggestive content.
