Pastor Mike has overcome many of life’s obstacles. Before Mike is able to move forward and become a lead minister, he must come in contact with his inner shadow. Sitting at church alone in prayer, Mike is paid a visit by his infamous friend–IMP. Following much debate between our two characters, Mike consequently gives in to the IMP’s seductive enticements.
During a long evening of partying an argument ensues between Mike and IMP. Mike soon discovers he’s headed down a path that once got him into a lot trouble. Mike is left with no choice but to level the playing field by eliminating the IMP. In doing so, Mike discovers that the IMP did not exist as an external apparition. What Mike came in contact with is the unconscious aspect of his own personality (the shadow) in which he had to accept or reject.
