Fabrice del Dongo, a young archbishop, gives his all to romance rather than to the Church, creating complications for everyone around. The Countess of San Severina is but one of the women who love him a la folie, spurring jealous retribution in high places from those who want her. From his prison window, Fabrice falls in love with the jailer's daughter, who takes a vow to the Virgin Mary to never see him again if he somehow manages to escape his cell.
