This Austrain-German television film focusses on  the Bamberg witch trials of 1630-31 during the Thirty Year's War (1616-1648). It  reveales how religious fanaticism tore apart communities in the context of war. Plagued by draught, inept politicians, and ongoing religious wars, residents of Bamberg blame witchery. Every death puts money in the coffers of the Catholic Church. One doctor tries to intervene by appealing to the emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Based on a historical novel by Sabine Ebert from 2008.
