In the mid seventeenth century professional witch-finders Warren and Clarke arrive at the village of Little Happens to preside over the trial of Elizabeth Gadge. She is accused of consorting with the devil by her daughter and son-in-law but claims that they want her cottage and has logical explanations for their accusations. Fanatical Warren wants a quick guilty verdict and the subsequent fee but the kindlier Clarke is beginning to doubt the integrity of their calling and may be able to save Elizabeth whom he see as the victim of covetous perjurers. Events will show which of them is right.
