“Põrgu Jaan” on müsteerium, mis on inspireeritud Põhjasõja-järgsetest süngetest aegadest. Rahvast on aastaid rõhunud sõda, nälg ja katk. Saladusliku põnevusloo peategelane on Jaan (Meelis Rämmeld), kes leitakse teadvusetult mererannalt. Jaan ei mäleta oma minevikku. Ta on võõras niihästi iseendale kui inimestele enda ümber. Juhuse tahtel asub Jaan elama paruni (Andres Lepik) juurde kohalikku mõisahoonesse, kus mõni aeg tagasi on aset leidnud õõvastav kuritöö. Ajapikku hakkavad ilmnema vihjed salapärase võõra tausta ja varasemate tegude kohta.
