Gene and Karen York are the living embodiment of the American dream. Rich, influential attorneys, they have everything a couple could wantâ€¦except a child. When the Yorks learn of a beautiful baby girl waiting to be adopted, they instantly fall in love with baby Delia and adopt her. But terror and destruction seem to follow Delia wherever she goes. The priest who baptised her mysteriously dies, and her nanny falls from a second-story window, impaling herself on a merry-go round. Soon, Delia's mother begins to question the coincidence of these catastrophes. Her thoughts can't help but turn toward the biblical prophecy of Armageddonâ€¦the final confrontation between the forces of good and evil, beginning with the birth of satan in human form.
