On a trip to Heaven to collect some souls, the Devil (Elmar Salulaht) hears from St. Peter (Jüri Järvet) that the heavenly powers have started to doubt whether it is at all possible for human beings to find salvation while living on earth. And if not, then there is also no point in punishing people with Hell. In order to keep receiving souls, the Devil also has to live on earth, in a manner that would grant salvation, which would prove it is possible. Life on earth turns out to be far from a walk in the park and the Devil soon starts to understand how hard it is for human souls to find redemption.
