Overview

When Dr. Henry Jekyll dares to explore the delicate balance between good and evil, he little suspects the destructive powers he will unleash. In London’s respectable society, Jekyll’s friends grow concerned. Why has Jekyll suddenly changed his will, and what is his connection with the frightening Mr. Hyde? In London’s squalor, a child is trampled and an elderly gentleman brutally murdered. Why do all fingers point towards Mr. Hyde? Is Jekyll strong enough to resist Hyde’s strange power? Are Jekyll’s friends strong enough to help? In this exploration of two sides of Victorian London and two sides of human nature, the conflict between good and evil has been given a terrifying twist.
