Northern Italy, 17th century. Sister Bernadette is in prison in Bobbio, accused of witchcraft by the Inquisition. She's being persuaded to plead guilty by newcomer priest Federico. If Bernadette does not confess, she must undergo three trials – water, fire and tears – to prove her innocence. The second plot of the story is contemporary, the formerly prison in Bobbio is neglected and abandoned. A Russian billionaire would like to buy the ruins. The case is  mediated by tax inspector Federico. The transaction cannot be made because of mysterious old man, the Count, who lives in the ruins and is occasionally seen at night. Federico must prove that the man is a fraud in order to complete the transaction. There's a lot of money at stake.
