Victorian England 1851. Florence Shelley, the child of poet Percy and Mary Shelley, is hosting a lavish event, determined to prove the theory of reanimation, the corner stone of his mother's story, Frankenstein. The ball is awash with stories of strange experiments and dead bodies. Diseased and dying of brain cancer Mary Shelley retreats to a sparse attic room with quill, ink and parchment, tended by the Bethnal Green child killer, Bertha Bates. With each passing hour of her final days she is haunted by ghosts of dead children, past lovers, and all those she loved. Among the psychotic memories of free love, erotica, absinthe induced nights of ghost stories at Lord Byron's summer house in Geneva, lies a world of fallen angels and malignant devils. In her dying room a dark ominous presence lurks, that of her monster. A confrontation is coming, he seeks a savage revenge. In her final breath comes the realization that it was a man from her past lovers from whom her monster was fashioned.
