1485. Dominique and Gilles, two of Satan’s envoys, are sent to earth disguised as minstrels to sow the seeds of discord at the celebration of Anne’s engagement to Renaud, a Knight. But fate is twisted as Gilles falls in love with the maiden. Satan himself cannot separate the young lovers and furiously turns them to stone.
