Evil focuses on a skeptical female psychologist (Herbers) who joins a Catholic priest-in-training (Colter) and a contractor (Mandvi) as they investigate the Church's backlog of unexplained mysteries, including supposed miracles, demonic possessions, and hauntings. Their job is to assess if there is a logical explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work.
