Banned in Italy, this movie tells the story of a teenage virgin who has somehow become pregnant. Mary is an epileptic and the town's witch (many rural Italian regions have women who practice folk-magic and medicine and whom they call witches or <i>stregoni</i>). When she appears to die after a seizure, she is given funeral rites but then recovers and walks home. Three months later, she is discovered to be pregnant. A furor gathers as the local people believe they are witnessing a virgin birth. The village priest is encouraged by his Cardinal to find the father of the baby...or else.
