It's there that Jeff meets 'The Darkling'; a powerful shadowy force that Bruno discovered on a trip to Hong Kong. The Darkling offers Jeff wealth and fame in return for his soul. Jeff agrees and sinks deeper into its power. Soon he discovers the true price to pay for the fulfilment of dreams - the life of his young daughter.
