The master puppeteer, Gaspare Grisini, is so expert at manipulating his stringed puppets that they appear alive. Clara Wintermute, the only child of a wealthy doctor, is spellbound by Grisini's act and invites him to entertain at her birthday party. But when Clara vanishes that night, suspicion of kidnapping falls upon the puppeteer and, by association, his assistants, Lizzie Rose and Parsefall.
