Set halfway through the 17th century, Greenaway's film follows a church play performed for the benefit of the young aristocrat Cosimo (Lacey). In the play, a grotesque old woman gives birth to a beautiful baby boy.

However, when she attempts to seduce the bishop's son (Fiennes), the Church exacts a terrible revenge.
