A local starost leads a boisterous life. A drunken plunderer, he rules his land with his own laws and respects only one person – a blacksmith, Wojtek, who helps everyone and, most importantly, catches and imprisons the neighbourhood devils, imps and other goblins on a willow tree. The starost avoids meeting the blacksmith if only possible, and, since he’s always short of gold, he makes a pact with the devil named Boruta. However, he doesn’t keep his end of the bargain, so the devil decides to seek help from the blacksmith. Together they prepare a ruse.
