For Whom the Dong Tolls follows the story of Arlecchino, a carefree fellow who has traveled to Venice to settle a debt with his old friend, Orlando. However, Orlando's father, the world-famous alchemist Dottore, has recently been murdered for his mystical secrets by rival wizard Pantalone. To make matters worse, Pantalone has snatched both Dottore's book of Spells and his beautiful young intern Olivia. Arlecchino, Orlando and Columbina, Olivia's saucy governess, must stage a daring rescue, braving the sword-wielding Capitano and Pantalone's gauntlet of borrowed magics.
