In 17th century Bologna, the Marquis of Frabetti comes into possession of a painting, The Lady of the Medallion, and becomes fascinated with the young woman depicted in it. Desperate with passion, and faced with the impossibility of meeting the model, he takes his own life, but not before attempting to send her a number of letters.

His obsession to bring the story of the Marquis’ love to the screen takes shape when a friend introduces him to the current owner of the canvas.
