A mortal battle is being waged for beautiful Princess Elena. Three powerful men have asked for her hand: the magician Skeleton has kidnapped her to make her his wife by force. Her lover Prince Afron has to undergo dangerous adventures to free her from the claws of the magician. But he has scarcely freed Elena when he is murdered by his rival, Prince Wolf.

However, Elena and Afron are still able to celebrate a happy end: Afron has the good witch Jadwiga on his side, who snatches him from the realm of death with her water of life.
