In 1348,England is devastated by the Bubonic plague which spreads death across the lands and villages. The young monk, Osmund, asks his beloved Averill to travel with him to a remote village near the Dentwich Forest where the Black Death has not reached yet. She says that she will wait for him in the forest, but Osmund tells her that he will stay at the Staveley Monastery as he is a man of God. However, the emissary of the bishop Ulric arrives at the monastery recruiting a religious man to guide his soldiers and him through the forest and the swamp to the village. They believe that there is a necromancer resurrecting people and protecting the village from the plague. Along their journey, they fight against forest thieves and Osmund finds Averill's clothes dirty and bloody. When they reach the village, they find happy and healthy villagers that have renounced God but are living in peace, and they are welcomed by the leaders Hob and the alchemist Langiva.
