The Great Sadini finds a young man unconscious on the carnival grounds and takes him to his trailer. The boy, Hugo, proves to be simple. His first thought upon waking's that Sadini and his wife are the devil and an angel. Sadini's compassion prompts him to take the kid under his wing and teach him about magic. The wife's cold heart leads her to beg the impressionable young man to commit murder.
