As a corrupt and tyrannical regime crumbles, Reina witnesses the kidnapping of her lover, Jericho, by the forces of her former oppressors. In a desperate attempt to save Jericho, Reina follows them to a mysterious underground facility teeming with deadly devices and supernatural artifacts that are key to regaining power.
Trapped in this underground fortress, Reina realizes that she is in possession of a necklace imbued with the power to allow her to revisit the recent past and right her mistakes.
