There is a violent storm raging around the small Caribbean island. A frightened child is being comforted by the storytellers. The island is inhabited by light skinned people who are the rich landowners and the darks skinned people who are the poor peasants who have to scrape for a living. Ti Moune is an orphan girl chosen by the gods for a special fate and saved for a special destiny by Asaka, mother of the Earth.
Now a grown-up, Ti Moune sees the handsome Daniel Beauxhomme passing by in his fine car. In the storm the car crashes and Ti Moune rushes to his rescue. By cheating the Demon of Death, Papa Ge, Ti Moune saves Daniel's life but at a terrible price - her soul. In the past, in the 19th century, Armand, a Frenchman, has a son, the original Beauxhomme. It is he who rises up and expels his father and his compatriots from the island - but he and his future descendants are cursed by Armand.
Ti Moune wants to marry Daniel but Euralie, who raised her, points out the impossibility of this as they are from different social class. Nevertheless, the pair become lovers. As Daniel recovers, he realises his responsibilities; his bride-to-be is the rich Andrea Devereaux and the announcement of their engagement is made at a grand ball.
Papa Ge arrives to claim Ti Moune. It is only by killing Daniel herself that can save her from her part in the Devil's bargain. Of course, she is unable to do the only thing that can save her.
After the wedding of Daniel and Andrea, the newly married couple come to the front of the hotel and throw coins to the peasants. Daniel gives a coin to Ti Moune but she is dying. Her life and untimely death leave a positive ending to the story - the power of love conquers the fear of death.
