Mahmoud's passion for his wife Fereiba, a schoolteacher, is greater than any love she's ever known.

While local legends of eerie nocturnal phenomena and sinister satanic cults abound, it’s a zealous and secretive religious sect that has Brennan spooked and struggling to separate the saints from the sinners.
