Michaela is a young epileptic who grew up in a deeply religious family. She experienced freedom and love during her first year at university. The experience cracks open the shell of faith and family within which she had always felt secure and protected. The result is a breakdown. Michaela finally seeks help from a priest, who only reinforces her conviction that she is possessed. The film has been promoted as a more truthful depiction of the real-life events of the exorcism of Anneliese Michel (1952 –1976), a German woman who was believed to have been possessed by six or more demons.
