A bride and groom are getting married. A man who used to be in love with the Bride, Leonardo Felix, comes to her window every night. His marriage is unhappy, and he still longs for her. One night, Leonardo confesses his love to her. She tries to stop him, but she loves him back. However, she goes on to the wedding, and Leonardo and his Wife are allowed to come. Shortly afterwards, everyone discovers that Leonardo and the Bride have run off together. The Mother then orders everyone to go and find them. In the forest that Leonardo and the Bride have fled off to, the Moon states that she wants to see human blood shed as revenge for being shut out of their homes. She and Death, the latter disguised as a beggar, agree to have Leonardo and the Groom kill each other. The Moon and Death manipulate them into meeting each other, and they do indeed kill each other. In the end, when the Bride returns to town, covered in the blood of her two lovers, she is either killed as a sacrifice to restore everyone's honor or forced to live without them as punishment for her deeds, depending on the version of the play.
