A misshapen superhuman embittered by societal isolation is the phenomenal output of an experiment never carried out before. The creator of this “patchwork human” is the science student Victor Frankenstein.

In the background there is the story of a family: a hallmark among the shattered certainties of the tormented Victor, faced with his public and domestic responsibilities. He is a pioneering scientist, functional father to his nameless and identity-bereft “child” and treasured betrothed.
