In this fantasy, spoken entirely in Gaelic and set in medieval Scotland, Derek McGuire evades assassins and joins the Hero clan. There he sleeps with an old woman who is magically transformed into a comely lass overnight. They become lovers. Trouble ensues when the clan leader desires her for himself. McGuire gives her up and the woman vanishes. Just before she goes, she puts a spell on him that makes him irresistible to any woman that sees him. The first one to look upon his face is the wife of the leader. She immediately falls hopelessly in love and the two end up escaping the clan together.
