The year is 1856, Transyville ia a remote market village situated in eastern Transylvania. Its inhabitants range from mainly agricultural laborers to landed aristocracy, but they share their village with several strange characters of a seemingly more sinister nature.

However, the evening has been overshadowed by the death of the local beauty queen, Virginia Vestalata, who was pushed to her death from the village church bell-tower, only two days ago.
