Jinn: Also romanized as djinn or anglicized as a genie (with the broader meaning of spirit or demon, depending on the source) – are supernatural creatures in early pre-Islamic Arabian religious systems and later in Islamic mythology and theology.

Demon: A demon is a supernatural entity, typically associated with evil, prevalent historically in religion, occultism, literature, fiction, mythology, and folklore.

William Starr lives in Dubai along with his family and their maids now. Billy is getting possessed by a Jinn while a demonic entity has attached itself to and followed him all the way from New York. Billy gets ill and his condition worsens without any doctor being able to determine the cause of his illness. He’s losing weight rapidly. Strange things continue to happen at Billy’s house until one of the maids, who is said to have psychic powers suspects a possession. Inviting a catholic priest (to exorcise the demonic entity) and an Islamic Imam (to get rid of the Jinn), an exorcism appears to be Billy's only chance of survival. Are the priest and the Imam able to save young Billy?
