At the Phantomhive manor, Ash has come to deliver orders from the queen. A cult has taken over some abandoned convents and has obtained the Book of Doomsday. With the book, which has the record of human's virtues and evil doings, they intend to revolt against the government. 

Ciel & Sebastian went to see undertaker to ask for a favor but instead   he find Grell in Undertaker clothes, and Undertaker in  a large urn filled with salt, they ask Grell his reason for being there, he said he was sent by William T. Spears to retrieve the cinematic record that was stolen. Undertaker is seen delivering a coffin meanwhile Sebastian,Ciel and Grell are hiding behind the bushes, the doorman welcome the coffin and the people hiding.
They are led to a large chapel, which has a stained glass window bearing the mark Ciel was branded with when enslaved. Children appear, call Grell "unclean," and then run to clean themselves when he touches them on the head. A young nun reveals that once you're over a certain age, everyone there will call you unclean. She then asks if they're newcomers to the church, and Sebastian uses his charm to learn more about the church from her.
She then reveals that the Book of Doomsday will become dirty if it's filled with people who live for a long time. The priest has the single ability to purify parts of the filth.Furthermore, the book can record not only the past, but the future, but only chosen children of heaven's choir can tell the future. Ciel asks if the heaven's choir sings, but she says that the beautiful sound comes from the priest's bedroom.
   
Returning to the chapel, the priest promises to cleanse the unclean and a few adults step forward and have their clothes removed, revealing the large mark identical to the stained glass window and Ciel's brand on their backs. The priest is handed a book, but Grell says he can't tell if it's the cinematic record. As he tells their sins, they begin to shake and cry and their bodies glow black. The middle stained glass window then shines brightly, plays their movies, then shatters. 

Ciel was chosen for the Heaven's Choir. They try to bathe him, saying even his fingernails have to be cleansed, but he struggles and refuses to allow them to. Sebastian charms them into letting him do the cleansing instead. While bathing, Ciel remembers that the puppet they saw had called him unclean before. Sebastian questions if he wants to climb out of hell, but Ciel states he's more interested in taking the men who enslaved him down with him.

In the chapel, the priest tells Ciel he'd like to read from the book to him, and the way he touches Ciel's face recalls that feeling from his hand. The man begins to strangle Ciel, and he calls for Sebastian's aid. Breaking through the stained glass window, he uses a shard to kill the priest.  He then moves to attack  Angela. She captures Ciel and reveals to Grell that she has the real, stolen magic play. She uses the power of the book to capture Sebastian in reels, and without his original death scythe, Grell is too slow to release him. Angela takes off with Ciel, and Grell and Sebastian take after them.
