Yoinked from wikipedia
Somewhere, an evil entity tells Morgan le Fay that he has been prevented 
from breaking through to the earthly realm by a great wizard, and that she has
three days either to defeat or kill the wizard and win over his successor to 
her master's side.
Le Fay possesses a young woman named Clea Lake and uses her as a weapon 
against Thomas Lindmer, the "Sorcerer Supreme". She pushes him off a bridge 
to his death, but instead of dying, he slowly gets up and magically heals 
himself. His friend, Wong, looks after him and locates Lake for him. Suffering 
from psychic aftereffects of the possession and haunting dreams of le Fay, Lake 
is under the care of psychiatrist Dr. Stephen Strange at a psychiatric hospital. 
Strange has the potential to become Lindmer's successor by virtue of abilities 
and items inherited by from his father, including a signet ring. Strange
intuitively senses something very wrong, sharing Lake's nightmare about the 
previous day's events, but does not understand what is going on.
Lindmer contacts Strange at the hospital and tells him that Lake needs 
more help than what can be offered by medicalscience. Strange takes Lindmer's 
card and is intrigued by the fact that Lindmer's card bears the same symbol 
as his ring.Meanwhile, le Fay possesses a cat and tries to have it enter 
Lindmer's house, but magical barriers repel it.
At the hospital, the head of Strange's department sedates Lake against 
his directions, and she appear to slip into a coma from which Strange is unable 
to revive her, Strange goes to visit Lindmer. Le Fay sees an opportunity to 
kill Strange, but hesitates, and he survives.
Lindmer tells Strange that his ignorance is a form of protection, and 
asks him whether he wants to know the truth or remain ignorant. Strange demands 
to know the truth, and Lindmer says that he knows about how Strange's parents 
died when he was eighteen. He says Strange is special, and that his parents 
died protecting him. He says there are different realms, and that Lake is trapped 
in them and only Strange can save her. Strange is dispatched to the astral plane 
and confronts and defeats the demon Balzaroth, who had been sent by le Fay to 
stop Strange from rescuing Lake. Strange and Lake return to the physical world.
The evil entity asks le Fay why she spared Strange. She confesses to being 
attracted to him, and the demon threatens to make her suffer eternity as an old 
woman. She vows that she will not fail. Strange checks on Lake, and agrees to 
dinner with her later. He goes to see Lindmer and rejects the reality of 
magic despite his recent experiences. As he leaves, he tries to remove his 
father's ring and finds he cannot. Without meaning to, he lets the possessed 
cat into the house. The cat transforms into le Fay and defeats Wong, seemingly 
killing him. She then defeats Lindmer, but she cannot kill him in this world, 
so she summons Asmodeus to transport Lindmer to the demon realms.
Strange visits Lake, but le Fay interrupts, promising him that promises 
him not to harm Lake so long as he comes with her to the demon realms. He 
agrees. Once there, he appears to be under her command. She offers him love, 
wealth, power, and knowledge. She attempts to seduce him, and on the verge 
of success, asks him to remove his ring. He protests that only Lindmer can 
remove it, but she counters that he can do it if he tries. He refuses, defying 
her. She attacks him, but he defeats her, rescues Lindmer, and returns them 
both to the earthly realm where he also revives Wong. The evil entity transforms 
le Fay into an old hag.
Lindmer explains that Strange must choose whether to remain mortal, 
or to become the Sorcerer Supreme, forgoing ignorance, offspring, and 
an easy death, but promises that he will, at least, have love. Strange 
chooses to protect humanity, and Lindmer's power is transferred to him. 
Lindmer passes out. Wong then warns him that, while he now has Lindmer's 
powers, he does not yet have the knowledge or the wisdom to use them 
correctly, and that, if he is not extremely careful, he can harm himself 
or others. Strange then carries Lindmer in his arms, and puts him to bed 
to recover.
Strange is then shown at the hospital, where many patients have been 
discharged. He leaves with Lake, who seems to have no memory of what 
happened, other than as a bad dream. Le Fay is shown on television, young 
again, posing as a self-help guru. Lake fails to recognize her. Strange 
agrees to meet Lake later, and the film closes with him playing a trick 
on a street magician, turning the flowers the magician was going to produce 
using sleight-of-hand into a dove.
