Chloe (Lauren German) is shocked when she learns that Lucifer Morningstar is the Devil, so she goes to Rome to do research on him. While in Rome she meets Father Kinley, a Vatican investigator who is an expert in the Devil and whose mission in life is to avert a hellish prophecy by thwarting the Devil’s evil plans against mankind.
