Crippled in mind and body, half-crazed puppeteer Ivan Tsarakov fulfills his dream of becoming a ballet dancer through Fedor Ivanoff, whom he trains to become the world's greatest dancer. Jealous of his pupil's success and fearing love will thwart Fedor's career, Tsarakov has smitten ballerina Nana Carlova dismissed from the troupe in a cruel and ruthless act that leads to blackmail and murder
