Vindice (Ian Richardson) broods over his fiancee's recent death and his desire for revenge on the lustful Duke (David Waller) for poisoning his beloved nine years before. Now, Vindice's brother Hippolito (Patrick Stewart), in the service of the Duke's son Lussurioso (Alan Howard), persuades his master to engage Vindice, disguised as the malcontented Piato, to pursue his own lustful designs - as it emerges, against their sister Castiza (Helen Mirren). As Piato, Vindice tests the virtue of Castiza, who remains resolute in her honour.
