In 19th century Estonia, a village is inhabited by personified Black Death, spirits, werewolves and the devil himself. A peasant girl, Liina, longs for a village boy Hans, while Hans longs for a daughter of an aristocrat. Both try to use mythical powers so that their unrequited love could change into requited love. However, the mythical powers don't give them what they wanted and in the end Hans dies before Liina and Hans could get together.
