After one of their storehouses burned down, the museum director and his assistant Pimm find everything destroyed with one exception; a statue withstood the fire undamaged.

Suddenly the museum director is lying dead on the ground.

The museum director's assistant set out to find out as much about the statue as possible and use it to his advantage.

The statue is called the Golem.

The Golem, having been created by Rabbi Judah Loew (a great rabbi of Prague, czechoslovakia) was given life by supernatural means in the 16'th century. The Golem is cast as a sort of gestalt entity, a physical manifestation of the ghetto's inhabitants' collective psyche. The Golem was brought to life against its will and wrestles with his particular form of the human condition. The Golem is a cursed figure. The Golem withstands every human attempt to destroy it. Pimm decides to use it to his own advantage.

In the end, Pimm realizes the Golem does not respond in accordance with his plans.
