18th century, Europe. Doctor Victor Frankenstein’s creation – the Creature – childlike in his innocence, is cast out into society by his horror-struck creator. As he learns to survive and master the highest of human skills, he searches for his creator to make a deal. Commemorating the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s classic gothic tale that created the science fiction genre, Frankenstein brings urgent concerns about scientific responsibility and the nature of good and evil.
