Inspired by works of Anatole France. According to Oriental legends, Talmud and the medieval books of Cabala, Lilith was not created from Adam's rib like Eve but from clay like he himself.

Lilith wasn't stained by Original Sin. She has no soul, and she is immortal. Lilith assumes different names, she can change her appearance and take possession of men against their will. Once it's accomplished, she leaves her victims forever, marking them for either spiritual, or physical death. Whatever she does is neither Good nor Evil. She is made of an altogether different matter.

The first line of the story is set in the Renaissance era (1664), where Theophilius (Ville Haapasalo), an art dealer from Riga, sets sail to his old business partner Borgraph (Yuri Tsurilo). He becomes possessed bythe mystical housekeeper Nida (Olga Shepitskaya) who, in some strange way, looks similar to the woman from an old painting he is going to sell.

The second part jumps to the 19th century (1883) to be set in Russian Empire and France. The young aristocrat Ari (Danila Kozlovsky) hurries to his mentor Safrak (Lembit Ulfsak) to confess his sins. His passion for the mysterious Persian beauty Leila (Anna Azarova) has led to madness of his good friend Paul (Regnars Vaivars) and suicide of his own bride. After hearing his confession priest's actions seemstrange.

And the last part of the movie takes place nowadays, in Riga (1990), where a middle-aged installation artist Franz (Aleksey Serebryakov) is lost somewhere in-between fantasies, artifacts and real life events. He is avoiding to fall into relationships and does not understand the meaning of his existence. Will he manage to withstand the temptation of "The Daughter of Lilith" – young gypsy Lola?
