Our hero, Francis is talking to a man, apparently in a garden, and explains the cause of the near-catatonic state of his fiancée, Jane. Francis tells the story of the annual fair in his small home village, and the visit to that fair by a mysterious hypnotist, Dr. Caligari. Caligari's act consists of a somnambulist in a box, Cesare, who only awakens from his sleep at Caligari's behest. When so awakened, Cesare will tell people's fortunes. Despite Francis' protest, his best friend Alan asks the psychic "How long have I to live?" Cesare's answer, "Until dawn tomorrow," proves to be true, sending Francis on a crusade to track down the killer in the village.
