A young woman confronts the personification of Death, in an effort to save the life of her fiancé. Death weaves three romantic tragedies and offers to unite the girl with her betrothed, if she can prevent the death of the lovers in at least one of the episodes. Thus begin three exotic scenarios of ill-fated love, in which the woman must somehow reverse the course of destiny: Persia, Quattrocento Venice, and a fancifully rendered ancient China.
