**Due to circumstances beyond our control, this episode is temporarily unavailable.**

A documentary filmmaker follows a real life exorcist in search of evil…but what happens if he finds it? Harris Fishman's first documentary, Cat Dancers, was a heartbreaking film made powerful by his "no judgments," open-minded approach. For his latest project, Harris is on a quest to understand the nature of evil. He's been following a real life exorcist, who finally agreed to let Harris and his crew bear witness to an exorcism. And what happened there is…worrying.
