The film follows the last hours of Count Lajos Batthyány in his cell before facing the firing squad; The TEMPTER appears before the count in various shapes to convince him to write a petition for a pardon. Batthyány has to make the most important decision of his life in the extreme frame of mind of those final hours. Should he be a martyr? Or a simple, fallible man who begs for a pardon from the tyrant.
