    Brief synopsis

    In the Swiss Emmental in the 12th century. The courageous midwife Christine makes a pact with the devil to save her village from the terror of the German Crusaders.

Christine takes up the fight against this diabolical power, which wants to take away the highest good for which she is willing to die: humanity.
