A film about Karen Blixen's friendship with the devil. In public Karen Blixen described herself as a "story-teller", but within a small inner circle - amongst others, the young man of letters, Aage Henriksen - she talked about herself as "the devil's mistress" and thanked him for his ability to convert everything into stories. Were her opinions pure literary ornament, metaphors for well-known phenomena, or did they have a deeper meaning? These questions led the later professor of literature, Aage Henriksen, onto a harrowing journey, which put him in connection with a number of occult phenomena. As a confidant on this journey, Aage Henriksen had his ten-year-old son, Morten.
Today Morten Henriksen is the film's director and he wants to get answers to all the questions which have accumulated over the years, while his father was still alive.
