The story is set in a futuristic Middle East, where a war between angels and demons leads to the building of a Tower of Babel. In the Bible, the Tower of Babel story was told in the Book of Genesis, where humanity united in Shinar after the Great Flood, to build a tower that would reach all the way up to heaven.
Here's what Patrick Tatopoulos had to say about the project in a statement.
