Fired from his job and abandoned by his wife, an everyday guy who has fallen on hard times finds out just how much worse things can get when he is killed in a car accident and sent to Purgatory to battle the forces of darkness in a visually dazzling fantasy adventure from director Philip Cook. Upon finding himself in his strange new surroundings, Gordon (Mark Redfield) is immediately besieged by the malevolent Shadowmen and the tormented Ragmen, each of whom thrive on laying waste to helpless lost souls. Thankfully Gordon isn't alone in this strange new landscape, and after taking up with a heroic gang of otherworldly freedom fighters who had given their lives in the name of fighting for good, he sets out to conquer the fortress of the supremely powerful and brutally merciless Despiser; the ultimate ruler of this Godless land of chaos.
