Nick Dear’s adaptation of Mary Shelley’s gothic novel retells the well-known story from the point of view of the Creature. The Creature is created by Victor Frankenstein, a troubled scientist who has grown frustrated by traditional scientific methods. His ego and dark ambition drive him to play with life itself and he succeeds in bringing the Creature to life. Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, the bewildered Creature is abandoned in a hostile world by his horror-struck maker. Frankenstein’s abandonment of the Creature sets into motion a spiral of catastrophic events that destroy Frankenstein’s loved ones and, ultimately, bind him to the Creature forever.
Victor Frankenstein creates a creature from human corpses. Once the Creature is brought to life, however, Victor is appalled by his creation's deformed appearance and flees in terror. The Creature wanders through the streets of Ingolstadt, lost and confused. Meanwhile, Gretel, a prostitute, is being assaulted in an alleyway and calls for help. The Creature frightens off her attacker, but Gretel recoils from her saviour, and a mob of villagers chase the Creature away. The next morning, the Creature sees the dawn for the first time and finds Victor's journal. He is then attacked by two beggars when he tries to take their food.
The Creature hides in an old cottage which is inhabited by a married couple, Felix and Agatha, and Felix's elderly, blind father, De Lacey. The Creature comes to care for them and brings them food in secret. De Lacey finds and befriends the Creature and, over the course of a year, teaches him to speak, read and write. The Creature reads Victor's journal and learns about his creator. De Lacey also teaches the Creature about love, and the Creature dreams of having a female partner. One day, Felix and Agatha come home and find the Creature; much as the Creature had feared, they are repulsed by him and drive him out. Enraged, the Creature sets fire to the cottage, killing the entire family. He swears revenge on Victor for bringing him into a world that hates him.
