In the declining Weimar Republic, Egon Loeser works as a stage designer for New Expressionist theatre. His hero is the greatest set designer of the 17th century, Adriano Lavicini, who devised the so-called Teleportation Device for the whisking of actors from one scene to another --- a miracle, until the thing malfunctioned, causing numerous deaths and perhaps summoning the devil himself.
