When Yulia, a nun living in a remote convent, claims immaculate conception, the Vatican sends a team of priests to investigate. Concerns grow about an ancient prophecy that a woman will give birth to twin boys: one the Messiah, the other the Anti-Christ. Hearing her unborn children speak to her, Yulia becomes convinced that she's been chosen by God. Following the arduous birth of her twins, the world around Yulia – and that of everyone she knows – begins to collapse into chaos. The prophecy demands the evil child must be sacrificed in order to save humanity. Torn between her motherly instincts and the fate of the world, Yulia is faced with the ultimate battle between good and evil.
