It is the first part of a trilogy of films, with the first one to be released in December 2017.[citation needed]


Three new arrivals in Purgatory must find their way around the afterlife with the help of St. Paul. Unfortunately for them, the gates separating heaven and hell have been broken, leaving the world of angels and demons in ruins. Soon, they are tasked with putting things right to avert a war between God’s celestial hosts and Satan’s devilish army.[3]
