Aging Italian aristocrat, Dame Alba d' Oltrevita wishes to be young again. She fulfills her wish courtesy of a pact with the Devil. Mephisto agrees to make her young again, but, as part of the pact, forbids her to fall in love with anyone. Dama Alba agrees and is once more young and beautiful. Soon, she's courted by two brothers, Tristano and Sergio, the latter threatening to kill himself if she doesn't give him her love. Alba pays no attention to him and chooses the other brother, provoking Sergio's demise. She prepares to marry Tristano, having forgotten her pledge to Satan, whose memory is quite intact.

The film depicts Asmus' terrible dream, wherein Satan joins the human world disguised as a tinker. He meets Asmus' wife, Ane, who years to have a baby, but has been unsuccessful in bringing one into the world. Satan takes advantage of her motherly desires by making a deal with her. As a result, the farmer's wife comes under the Devil's spell and seduces the local priest, giving the Devil the opportunity to build his own church on the site of the old Christian church, which burned down.
