Cardinal Richelieu and his power-hungry entourage seek to take control of pre-Renaissance France, but need to destroy Father Grandier - the priest who commands the fortified town that prevents Richelieu from exerting total control. Richelieu seeks to destroy the priest by setting him up as a warlock in control of a devil-possessed nunnery where the Mother Superior is sexually obsessed by Father Grandier. A mad witchfinder is brought in to gather evidence against the priest in preparation for his inquisition and trial.
Based on Aldous Huxley's 'The Devils of Loudon'.
