The Story

The beautiful dancer Esmeralda is condemned by Archdeacon Frollo as depraved, yet he finds himself lusting after her and plots to have her kidnapped. Phoebus, the Captain of the Guard, intervenes and begins to seduce Esmeralda. Enraged, Frollo murders Phoebus and frames Esmeralda, but she is rescued by the beleaguered hunchback Quasimodo, who provides her with sanctuary in the belfry of Notre Dame Cathedral. Tragically, it is not enough to save her from a horrifying end caused by the evil men around her and the unjust power they wield.
