A young orphan boy survives the devastation of the Thirty Years War only to find fantastical horrors in the post-war German states. Following war, famine, and the plague, Krabat finds refuge with a town miller. He discovers a new world of magic and dark arts from the miller/master, which has deadly consequences. The supernatural mysticism parallels the war's religious fanaticism, particularly its witch hunts.
