Ava’s (Alba Baptista) dreams come true in the latest young adult Netflix Original series that mixes sci-fi, period, and fantasy genres.

“My whole life, I’ve dreamt about being dead,” the 19-year-old explains at the beginning of the trailer (below). “I leave my body, and I see myself from above—a normal girl—until I wake up and I realize that I’m still the freak I’ve been my whole life. One thing I’ve learned since then: life has a really f**ked up way of making your dreams come true.”

Jack is 'stuck at a crossroads and has to make some decisions,' the star says.

The series, inspired by the manga novels, follows Ava after she wakes up in a morgue with powers and a divine artifact embedded in her back. She learns she’s the chosen one of a secret society of warrior nuns who protect the world from evil, The Order of the Cruciform Sword. She has to juggle being a teenage girl with fighting demons on Earth and powerful forces representing heaven and hell that want to control her.

The series also stars Tristán Ulloa (Father Vincent), Kristina Tonteri-Young (Sister Beatrice), Lorena Andrea (Sister Lilith), Toya Turner (Shotgun Mary), Thekla Reuten (Jillian Salvius), Sylvia De Fanti (Mother Superion), Emilio Sakraya (J.C.), Olivia Delcan (Sister Camila), Joaquim De Almeida (Cardinal Duretti), May Simón Lifschitz (Chanel), Dimitri Abold (Randall), and Charlotte Vega (Zori).
