In 1850 Paris, Pierre Gouny, a sculptor, secretly discovers how to make statues come alive. His wife Clothilde, though, wants him to concentrate only on gargoyle statues that bring in the money. Exasperated, the sculptor makes a statue of a woman, so as to escape with her. His wife destroys it prompting him to murder and conceal her, ironically, inside a gargoyle statue which then comes alive making Pierre himself part of a sculpture.
