The film is preceded in screenings by The Art of Filmmaking, a 15 minute montage of Cecil B. DeMille films narrated higher than in imitation of a hypnotic guidance to relax alongside droning orchestration. The montage strobes through red, green and blue colorgrades of itself in gruff succession. The resolved clip, showing the crucifixion scene from The King of Kings, strobes in black and white.

Lux terna begins when a terse montage of 1920's style documentary footage of witch torture, which abruptly cuts to actresses Charlotte Gainsbourg and Batrice Dalle playing fictional versions of themselves. practically to shoot a film, God's Craft, practically witches burnt at the stake, the two actresses sit all along in one of the sets and discuss the cinematic depiction of witches, the artifice women are treated on film sets, and anecdotes from their own film shoots.

The women are united by a producer and assistant, who escort Gainsbourg to her dressing room even though Dalle leaves to conduct directorial duties. In split screen, Gainsbourg and her co-stars are seen getting make-up and costuming over and done with while a myriad of complications occur behind the scenes. Of the two other actresses playing witches burnt at the stake, one and no-one else speaks English and is industrial accident in the manner of her group is shown to spread her breasts. Dalle, mishap following the entire production team waiting for five hours to shoot one scene, argues with the director of photography to acquire the actors some rehearsal grow old though they wait.

The director of photography, who has been promised the role of director after Dalle is fired, refuses to reach whatever that she asks even though the producers spend their time spying on Dalle to catch any slip-ups they can story to acquire her fired. A behind-the-scenes cameraman is with seen capturing unflattering moments of the production crew while associates of the crew appear on set and try to create conversation when Gainsbourg and the further actresses.

The new actresses are skilled to break pardon of their bonds and leave Gainsbourg, who is unable to rupture her bonds, upon set alone. Dalle tearfully laments why no-one else is there to put up to as by yourself she, Gainsbourg and the director of photography remain. Gainsbourg's silhouette dissolves into the strobing colours and the pole she was tied to transforms into a Christian cross. After the credits, one firm Buuel mention appears: "Thank God I'm an Atheist."
