The only thing standing in their way is one last shift. But what seems like a routine call quickly gets out of hand when a proselytizing mass of flesh abducts Sal’s newest coworker, Luke, and turns their extermination job into a rescue mission. Sal and their teammates, Molly and Hussam, are as experienced as they come, but will it be enough to overcome the horrific creature that waits in the shadows while simultaneously battling the incompetence of their boss?
