While Dr. Jekyll attends the theater one night, he is convinced that unimaginable pleasure and satisfaction can be gained through the release of one's inner desires. With one concoction and a slew of frightening hallucinations, Dr. Jekyll is able to conjure an alter ego who is more terrifying than enlightening. The Hyde personality begins to dominate Dr. Jekyll's entire life, and raises the concerns of everyone around him.
