CAST: THE COUNT OF SAINT GERMAIN (Count of Rogoczy) GIACOMMO GIROLAMO CASANOVA (Gentleman of Seingalt) MADONA (Rock singer)
After Madona gives us a quick rundown of the gossip involving Casanova and the Count of Saint Germain (famous alchemist of the court of Louis XVI), Casanova arrives in Puerto Rico in search of the Count in order to obtain the fantastic Mistyblue, elixir of eternal life. Madona, the Count's loyal servant, tries to dissuade Casanova who seeks an audience with the Count. After the Count agrees to the visit, the world famous lover uses all means possible to convince the Count to give up one drop of Mistyblue. Casanova hopes this elixir will relieve his problem of impotence which has him on the run to escape the embarrassment it has caused him in Europe.
The Count had already taken five drops of Mistyblue, 214 years ago, and, tired of life, is furiously seeking an antidote which will bring him the peace of death. He hasn't found it yet, but he has invented a certain prototype of one which he hasn't tried since he fears it might not work. After surmising that Casanova only desires Mistyblue in order to prolong his life of conquest and deceit, the Count devises a plan. In order to test the antidote, the Count gets Casanova to drink some of it by staging an elaborate ritual which makes him believe it is the famous Mistyblue he is receiving. Casanova, victim of the antidote's effect, changes into a deformed, foul-smelling being.
Casanova seeks revenge and convinces Madona to aid his cause. She secretly exchanges the flasks of a new antidote the Count believes he has invented, and Mistyblue. Casanova, who has regained his sexual prowess after much effort, seduces the insatiable Madona who has been frustrated due to the Count's non-stop search for an antidote. Casanova agrees to try the second antidote and seek death since his life is worthless in its deformed state. He and Madona, now his lover and ally, fake the Italian lover's death and dupe the Count into drinking the entire flask of Mistyblue. The Count is now condemned to eternal life and Madona and the Count raucously celebrate their triumph.
