Plot Summary
This film tells three tales set in the same castle. In the first, Count Michel Forbek (Ruggero Raimondi) builds a castle in which he tries to create a utopian society by strange means. Years later, an educational conference occurs in the castle in which trysts take precedence over education and Nora Winkle (Geraldine Chaplin) makes predictions about her friend's relationship. Finally, children in the castle create a fantastical story about medieval times.
