As the plague sweeps through Europe, orphaned teen Krabat (Kross) is offered a home by an old mill keeper (Redl) who is clearly a mentor for the young men who live and work there. But Krabat immediately notices something strange is going on. Indeed, the master is a sorcerer training his boys in the dark arts.

Lee remains his island of sensibility even when she discovers that her boy has volunteered to have synthetic muscles implanted in his legs in order to beat everyone on the soccer field.
