One freezing morning, a lone man wandering across the arctic ice caps is rescued from starvation by a ship's captain. As he is nursed back to health, Victor Frankenstein recounts his story is of ambition, murder, and revenge. As a young scientist Frankenstein pushed moral boundaries in order to cross the final scientific frontier and create life itself. But his creation is a monster stitched together from grave-robbed body parts who has no place in the world, and whose life can only lead to tragedy.
