Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: «...(Isa)Bella is the daughter of Michael, a gypsy duke. Michael is innocently hung for defending two fellow gypsies. Bella is brought up by the old gypsy Braka. Being of royal gypsy blood does not provide Bella with much wealth. Braka tells her the legend of the Mandrake (Alraune). In this version of the folklore, the Mandrake (a creature created from the roots formed from a hung man's tears) is able to locate treasure. Bella decides to use her father's hanging to bring life to the creature. The imp is dubbed Cornelius and Bella develops a strange affection for him...». «The first adaptation of Ewers’s novel, Alraune.
