    Venedig, 1604. I byens mere skumle kvarterer, blandt kurtisaner og hasardspillere, begynder der at gå rygter om en yderst smuk og sjælden diamant - Sultanens Blå. Paul Pindar, en købmand udsendt af det Ostindiske Kompagni, får nys om den og bliver mere og mere overbevist om, at diamanten har forbindelse til hans elskede Celias skæbne. I den landlige omegn af byen får en gruppe kvindelige gøglere en besynderlig opgave: De skal transportere en stum kvinde og hendes forkrøblede "havfruebarn" til Venedig. Samtidig skjuler en ung kvinde, med en mystisk fortid, sig i et af Venedigs klostre.
