SYNOPSIS

Princess Dione rescues Katerina Vlasoff from her abusive father, unaware that the girl has had a liaison with her husband, Guido Capanelli.

Declared dead, while really only in a trance, she is rescued from her bier by Feodor Strogoff, her former suitor.

Finding the vault empty, Guido is accosted by the ghostly figure of Dione, clad in her shroud. Terror stricken, he backs toward the sea cliffs and falls over the precipice to his death. Their revenge extracted, Dione and Feodor are ... +
