What Hellhole is about

This is the synopsis of the film: In 1987, a young militiaman infiltrates a monastery isolated from the world, where the monks run a clinic for the possessed and possessed. Posing as a clergyman, he tries to explain the mysterious disappearance of some residents.

The story moves forward thirty years and sees Father Marek as the protagonist, a young friar who has been assigned to the monastery run by Prior Andrzej, who considers it as a sanatorium where lost souls can be reformed. The sacred place receives grants from the Vatican precisely for the particular activities that are held inside it, relating to exorcism practices.
