Synopsis


In 19th century London, “corpse reanimation technology” was developed to the point where “the dead” were used for labour. Brilliant medical student John Watson is invited to join the UK government’s secret society, the Walsingham Institution, and given a clandestine mission: search for the legendary writings called “Victor’s private papers”. Dr Victor Frankenstein left them behind a century ago, and they supposedly detail the top secret technology used to produce “The One”, the original reanimated corpse that could speak and even had its own will. Accompanied by Friday, a corpse that records all activities, Watson begins the grand journey in search of Victor's private papers.
