Marquis Mathuren is about to marry Lucy, a wealthy American heiress. The bride, who arrived in an old castle, hidden from prying eyes in a virgin forest, does not know anything about the carefully hidden family secret, which has become a curse of a noble family. It turns out that two hundred years ago, the Marquis of Romilda, the great-grandmother of her fiancé, sinned with a forest monster ...
Lucy and her aunt go to the castle, driving a stable along the way. There, Lucy takes pictures of two copulating horses, which meets her aunt's disapproval.
In the castle, they meet with the owners and are waiting for Cardinal Bolo, who is to marry Lucy with Mathuren. In the process of waiting, the aunt talks with the household of the castle, and Lucy examines the paintings. One of them shows a woman in whose vagina an unknown animal sticks its tail. Lucy is interested in the picture, but Maturen's father takes it from her.
At dinner, Mathuren demonstrates his rude nature. Everyone drinks a lot and goes to the bedrooms. Lucy, wearing a thin nightgown, admires herself in front of the mirror in her bedroom, then lays down on the bed and falls asleep. In the next room is sleeping Mathurin.
Lucy is dreaming of a marquise. The marquise runs after her lamb into the forest and finds him in a clearing torn by an unknown monster. Monster - an unprecedented animal with black hair jumps out from behind the bushes and runs after the marquise. The marquise on the run loses parts of her toilet and, finally, in one corset grabs the branch and hangs on it. The run up animal begins to lick between her legs and masturbate at the same time.
Lucy wakes up sweating. She does not understand whether it was just a dream, and envies the Marquise. She goes into the room to the groom, but he is sleeping soundly. The girl returns to herself and lies down again, but she is seized with excitement. She goes to the bathroom, and soaks her nightgown, and then lies down on the bed. Lucy begins to masturbate, dreaming of being in the place of the marquise. In her dreams, Lucy surrenders to the beast and he takes possession of it. In reality, she beats on the bed, mastering herself again and again. Having regained consciousness, she regrets that the adventure in the forest did not happen to her, as it seems to her that she fell in love with the beast. She dreams that, having married Maturen, she will still go into the forest and copulate with the beast.
The girl again goes to Mathuren, but he is still sound asleep. Then Lucy again willingly returns to her dream of copulation with the beast. In her dreams, she sucks power from her husband and gives it to the beast, and he takes possession of it again and again. In dreams, the beast takes possession of it many times and, finally, dies of exhaustion. Waking up, Lucy last goes to Mathuren and finds him dead on the floor. In horror, she calls for help the whole house, and the runaway household strips the dead Maturen. He is all covered with thick hair and has a tail.
In shock, Lucy leaves her house with her aunt. In the car, she falls asleep and again sees herself in the forest burying the beast. Lucy is not sad about this and dreams that her future husband will be a beast.
