Inferno deals with the current construction of the third Temple of Solomon (Templo de Salmão) in São Paulo, by the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God. Built to biblical specifications, this new temple will be a replica of the first temple in Jerusalem, the violent destruction of which signalled the dispersal of the Jewish people in the 6th century BC. Shot and edited in grandiose Hollywood style, Inferno mingles fact and fiction, prophesy and history.
