Cardinal Richelieu and his power-hungry entourage seek to take control of pre-Renaissance France, but need to destroy Father Grenadier, the priest who runs the fortified town that prevents them from exerting total control.

Richelieu devises a plan to set him up as a warlock in control of a devil-possessed nunnery. A mad witch-hunter is brought in to gather evidence against the priest and to prepare a case for trial.
