Wrongly burned at the stake as a result of her father's betrayal, a pious 15th century girl makes a deal with the devil in this dark animated fantasy from director Andrew Orjuela. Reluctantly accepting the Prince of Darkness' offer of spending eternity in Hell over an unimaginably painful death, Hope is crushed to learn her true origins and discover the grim fate of her mother and devoted lost love. When Lucifer realizes that Hope's soul is incorruptible, he banishes her to the deepest depths of the netherworld, where she attempts to free the souls of her loved ones. Soon joining forces with the outcast Cremator as well as Vassago and the Nameless Wolves, Hope transforms into the fearsome Lady Death and returns to the gates of Hell to do battle with The Lord of the Flies himself.
