When Victor Frankenstein’s fiancée, Elizabeth, reveals she had a near-death experience, the ambitious young scientist feels his glory calling to him. Through unbearable grief, he will seize the impossible: Victor Frankenstein will conquer death itself! Begged by Elizabeth, warned by dreams, Victor cannot stop his ambition—his ill-fated reach for glory—from taking him by the throat. Seeking love and acceptance from his creator, alone in all the world, Frankenstein’s nameless Monster shines a light on Victor’s inability to see with his heart rather than his eyes. Victor’s success—his glory—becomes his worst nightmare, forcing him to choose again and again—between lies and the truth, between love and loss. Even as his world crumbles, Victor will not take responsibility for his actions, begging the question: Which is the monster?
