In this adaptation of a story by the Brothers Grimm, Christoffel, a handsome lad who is entirely without money, cuts a deal with the Devil in return for which he will be given a magical coat whose pockets are perpetually full of gold. The catch is that he is not allowed to bathe or cut his hair for seven years. Before long he has become a social pariah, and no one will come near him, except for one lovely and loyal young woman, Katarina, who stands by for the whole ordeal and then becomes his bride when he is finally presentable again.
