Up the hill from the liquor store, Father Gardner senses that he is being challenged by the demons. Unable to ignore the foul presence, he makes his way down to the liquor store where the demons have kicked off their destructive and sinister plans for the evening. Now, Garth, Win, Gardner and three unexpected armed robbers must fight their way out of the liquor store where their flesh and souls are being shredded. Gardner must revisit his past and renew his faith in order to defeat the nastiest demon that he’s ever encountered and protect the lives of his neighbors against the last and worst customer of the night.
