The dark rapture of a medieval terror has come back to claim the young and innocent one by one... by one.

Neilsville, 1978: Peter Balsam has come to this sleepy desert town to teach its youth, and finds a mystery of mounting horror. Something is happening to the young girls of St. Francis Xavier High School – something evil. In bloodlet and terror a suicide contagion has swept the town... while a dark order of its holy men enacts a secret medieval ritual.

Is hysteria manipulating these innocent children into violent self-destruction? Or has a supernatural force, a thirteenth-century madness, returned to... Punish the Sinners.
