Black magic clashes with the power of love

The orphan Krabat gets a job as a miller’s assistant at the mill in Schwarzkollm. Here the master teaches the miller’s trade to him as well as the other apprentices – and additionally they learn the art of black magic. The price of the magic power and living in the mill is high. The mill is under a curse. Sacrifices must be made. At the end of each year one of the boys must die. Krabat decides to stand in the master’s way. But for that he needs the help of a courageous young girl. To save Krabat and to break the curse of the mill, the girl must be prepared to face a life-and-death ordeal.
