Kia is a succubus, luring to their final perdition men who already have sinful habits and libertine inclinations. She tires of this, it's too easy, and these souls are going to Hell anyway. She wants to match wits and charm with someone who is good. So, against the advice of her sister Amael, Kia seeks out Marc, a man who has already faced death with courage. After a night together, Kia finds that not only is Marc's goodness still intact, but she has been ravaged by love. In anger, she and Amael conjure an incubus to deal with Marc. The incubus starts with Marc's sister, Arndis. Who will win the struggle for souls?

On one of the DVD commentary tracks, Anthony M. Taylor
explains that the original screenplay was written in English and then translated into Esperanto. A sole surviving print of the film was found in Paris, subtitled in French. A copy of the original screenplay was found and the English language subtitles are based on the script, not a translation of the spoken Esperanto dialogue back to English, so any mistranslations are actually from the English to Esperanto, not vice versa, or else were changes which were not incorporated back into the original English language script. The English subtitles are sometimes erratic. For example, at one point Marc says to Kia: "I want us to be together. To stay together ... as man and woman." This matches the Esperanto dialogue. Then he says, "Mi volas havi infanon." The correct translation: "I want to have a child." The subtitles say: "The right way." He also says, "Mi deziras, ke ni estas kune." Translation: "I want us to be together." Subtitles say, "I want your body ... and I want to give you mine." See more
He has faced death, Kia.
They all face death, all of them.
He was unafraid!
Is that so pure and noble? The beasts in the fields have courage. The smallest bird will beat its wings and claw a weasel in its nest.
But his courage went beyond self-preservation.
