Dean Corso (Johnny Depp) is a New York City rare-book dealer motivated solely by financial gain. In the event, wealthy book collector Boris Balkan (Frank Langella) hires Corso to authenticate the seventeenth-century book The Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows, by Aristide Torchia; it is one of three extant copies, and now in Balkan’s possession. The book contains nine engravings that, when correctly deciphered and the interpretations properly spoken, will raise the Devil. Balkan suggests to Corso that the book might be a forgery, understanding that two other copies exist. Balkan hires Corso to travel to Europe, assess the two other known copies, and establish whether or not any of the three copies of The Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows are genuine — and, if so, acquire them for Balkan, at any cost, or by any means.
