In an attempt to set things right, he has worked for years to invent a way to free this soul from Hell. But Dr. Henricherson's efforts have stirred demonic attention by those who see this as a way to seize power in Hell. Chased by these demons, Dr. Henricherson is badly injured and is forced to hand over his discoveries to his prize pupil, a medical intern named Dr. Gabriel Oldman, imploring him to deliver a briefcase to an old friend before it's too late!
