Synopsis / Plot
The wild and filthy monk Grigori Rasputin stumbles into an inn. Upon learning that the innkeeper’s wife is ill with a fever that no doctors can cure, Rasputin heals her with his hands. But immediately after doing so Rasputin drinks wildly, tries to force his way with the innkeeper’s daughter, severs her fiance’s hand after he tries to intervene and is forced to flee by an angry mob. When the villagers approach his bishop over this incident, Rasputin is ordered to leave the monastery. He heads to St Petersburg where he falls in with a disbarred doctor. In an inn Rasputin meets Sonia, a handmaid to the Tsarina. After having his way with Sonia, Rasputin hypnotizes her into contriving an accident for the young prince heir Alexei and then recommending him to the Tsarina. He is able to heal Alexei and is acclaimed as a result. Rasputin becomes a confidant of the Tsarina and uses this influence to gain advantage and manipulate the court. But when he callously discards Sonia and hypnotizes her to kill herself, her brother and others plot to kill Rasputin and bring down his diabolic influence over the crown.
