The devil himself and her famulus arrive in Budapest in a London taxi. They have come to take the cure-all elixir of life, the extractum vitalis, which would significantly impair the devil’s chances in the market for souls. In the guise of an ex-love, the devil looks up the inventor. His information is not entirely correct and the old man suspects something, showing him the door. It seems that not everything goes right, even for the devil. After this setback, the devil, who never kills anyone personally, decides to try the Hungarian underworld but in vain. Like country, like underworld.
