Gino Bechi and Annette Bach portray Allesandro and Ortensia, the Lovers in this Italian romantic melodrama. Warned by an astrologer that he will die violently at an early age, Allesandro avoids all romantic entanglements. He rises to fame as a musician, devoting all his love and energy to his art. And then he meets Ortensia, the daughter of an influential Venetian. At first resisting her attractions, Allesandro is emboldened when he discovers the astrologer who placed the malediction on him has died. But Allesandro has not taken into consideration the volatile temper of Ortensia's overprotective father (Gualtiero Tumiati).
