Each chapter is animated with different styles. These vary in degree of difference and depict Dante with differing features, such as hair length, bodily proportions, and armour. The film starts with Dante's return from the Third Crusade.
Speaking in inner monologue, he describes the forests as gloomy and nearly worse than death. He can detect someone following him, but each time he tries to approach, his pursuer vanishes.
Upon arriving, he finds his servants slain, his father dead and his beloved fiancee Beatrice lying on the ground, dying of a stab wound to the stomach.
As she dies, she turns into a spirit and begins to ascend into Heaven. However, disguised as a shadow, Lucifer plucks Beatrice from the sky and into the gates of Hell.
Dante gives chase through the forest, but stops as the portal that Lucifer opened closes around all 3 of them. Dante is attacked by, but subsequently slaughters an oncoming mob of creatures, only to be captured by a score of serpent-like arms which suspend him immobile in the air.
They sow a red cross into his chest and torso, a living tapestry, detailing his greatest sins in life. Virgil appears and offers to guide him through hell. After Dante invokes his faith he is able to tear open the gates and enter hell for himself.
Not long after arriving into Hell, Dante and Virgil board the being Charonitself a massive demonic living-ferry that takes souls across the river Acheron to the First Circle of Hell.
Charon commands demons to attack Dante, as no living being is allowed to enter. Dante fights them off, but loses his sword in the process and so takes up one of the demons' scythes as his own. He then proceeds to kill Charon, plunging his scythe into Charon's head, and steering him into the coasts of the first circle, whereupon Charon is impaled through the head and neck.
Virgil and Dante enter the first circle, limbo which is home to mostly virtuous pagans and unbaptized babies. It is here Dante learns Beatrice was pregnant with his child while he was away, but miscarried after 5 months.
Without time for sorrow, he is attacked by demonic children. As he and Virgil escape into a large building, they come across a hall of great rulers, philosophers and thinkers such as AristotlePlatoSocrates and Saladinwhose forces Dante had battled during his crusade.
They move on, and eventually encounter King Minos whose task is to judge all condemned souls to their sin's corresponding circle of hell. When he denies Dante access, they battle. Dante kills Minos by dropping him onto his own spinning wheel of judgement. Meanwhile, Lucifer tortures Beatrice in a cycle of killing her, tricking her endlessly with the hope of rescue and taunting her that Dante had never kept his promises after he left.Directed by Ron Howard.
