Toby Dammit is an alcoholic British actor who goes to Rome to act in a Catholic western in exchange for a Ferrari. Surrounded by journalists and producers, fed up with everything, and in a constant alcoholic haze, on TV he says he only believes in the Devil. And every now and then he sees a girl holding a strange ball. Inspired by Never Bet the Devil Your Head - A Tale with a Moral by Poe, and starring a devastated Terrence Stamp, a small, dark masterpiece by Fellini, in which the world of film is scarier than a nightmare.
