Ten years ago, the Duke murdered Vindici's wife on their wedding day and then Vindici fled. His family fell into poverty, while the Duke, Duchess and their decadent sons acquired wealth and power. Today, Vindici returns and with the help of his brother Carlo, he sets about the destruction of the Duke and his entire clan. The Duke is well protected; and his villainous first-born Lussurioso, is determined to seduce Vindici's sister, Castiza. When the Duke's youngest son is imprisoned for the rape of a beautiful aristocrat, Imogen, Vindici sees an opportunity to test his mother and his sister and to secure his revenge.
