Mona Masters, a promising magician, becomes apprentice to Merlina, aka the Black Witch. Merlina kidnaps three magicians to steal their secrets. Mona rescues them but burns her hands doing so. Merlina soon dies, but before she does she curses Mona’s hands, saying they will never heal. The hands refuse to heal and Mona is convinced Merlina’s curse is making her unable to perform magic again. However, the three grateful magicians are determined to help Mona overcome the problem and make her a famous magician.
