Adapted from Aldous Huxley's "The Devil's of Loudun," the story revolves around a liberal-thinking priest in 17th Century France, whose womanizing exploits make him unpopular with the Catholic clergy and whose political views make him a liability for Cardinal Richelieu. He is denounced and accused of consorting with the devil and having sexual activities with the nuns in the town's convent, most notably Sister Jeanne, an unsatisfied, humpbacked nun in love with him.
