In a Polish Jewish village about a hundred years ago lives Teibele, a young attractive woman whose husband has deserted her and apparently disappeared. So Teibele can't remarry until he's legally declared dead. Enter the "demon" who's actually Alchonon, a woe begone, unemployed scholar despised by Teibele. But he knows of her fascination for biblical demons and their powers and devises an audacious plan to woo and win her in the dark. Thus he seduces the passionate Teibele and comes to adore her. But Alchonon wants to marry her and a domesticated demon would be too much for even guileless Teibele to accept. So Alchonon devises another scheme to make this come about but it wouldn't be fair to tell you the outcome.
