Based on the eponymous fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, this film tells the story of a boy who is born under a lucky star: Felix. The midwife predicts that good forces will always take care of him and later he will even marry the princess. When King Ottokar learns about this, he seeks the boy’s life. Whatever the injustice, whatever the danger Felix is exposed to, everything in his life turns for the good. He finds comfort and happiness with his foster parents, becomes a smith and plays the violin beautifully. Finally, he even marries the king’s daughter Isabel against the will of the king. However, her father imposes a condition: Felix is to get him the three golden hairs of the devil - supposedly as a bridal gift. Ottokar suppresses the fact that he needs the devil hairs for his experiments. For love of Isabel, the young smith sets off knowing that nobody has ever returned from hell. On his way he meets a hunter who accompanies him on this dangerous journey. The strange thing is that the hunter always asks about the princess and wants to know what Felix feels for her...
