Synopsis
Around 30 A.D., in King Herod’s palace in Jerusalem, Princess, Salome, who is a daughter of Herodias, and is the stepdaughter of Herod. King Herod killed his brother who is a father of Salome, and married Herodias who is the wife of his brother.
Herod leered at Salome, so she escapes to the grounds when it’s a full moon. She heard a weird voice from beneath the ground. This voice is the prophet Jochanaan’s who was confined to an old well by King Herod.
Salome is interested in this voice, and she orders Narraboth, who is a young captain of the guard, to open the cover of the well. Disregarding the fact that opening the well is prohibited, Narraboth opens it for the Princess.
Jochanaan appears at the mouth of the old well. He condemns Herodias’s marriage to Herod. And, he is not interested in Salome at all. When Salome begs for Jochanaan's kiss, he returns to the old well.
King Herod and Herodias also come to the grounds. Herod always leered at his stepdaughter, Salome. He orders her to dance, but she refuses to. Herod tells Salome that if she dances here for him, he will give her what she wants.
So, Salome dances for Herod, and gradually sheds her seven veils.
King Herod is satisfied with her dance, and asks her what she wants. Salome wants the head of Jochanaan on a silver platter. Herodias is pleased with Salome’s demand. But King Herod is afraid of killing the holy man. Herod tries to persuade her to give up her demand, but she refuses.
Salome kisses the head of Jochanaan. King Herod sees that weird scene. He orders his soldiers to kill Salome.
