Loosely based on a story by Herbert Achternbusch, this haunting film is set in an eighteenth-century Bavarian town with a glassblowing factory, famous for producing a brilliant ruby glass. When the master glass blower dies taking with him the secret to making the red glass, the local Baron and factory owner becomes obsessed with it.
