In return for eternal youth and the love of the beautiful Marguerite, Faust sells his soul to the devil Mephistopheles. As Valentin, a young officer and Marguerite’s brother, prepares to go to war, he entrusts the care of his sister to his friend Siébel. But when he returns, he finds that Marguerite has been condemned to death for killing her illegitimate child by Faust, who has now abandoned her. But she resists Mephistopheles’ attempts to claim her and the angels proclaim her salvation, as Faust is dragged down to hell.
