A fascinating and colorful English-language dramatization of incidents drawn from the Ramayana. A love-sick demoness disguised as a beautiful woman attempts to seduce the unwilling victim. After gentle persuasion fails, the demoness assumes her true form and attempts to terrorize her beloved into sub-mission. Her boasts of sexual prowess serve as a humorous highlight of the production. In a spectacular conclusion, the demoness is disfigured and vows to seek revenge.
