Synopsis

An extrapolation from real events in the life of James Whale, who directed the Universal Pictures horror classics "Frankenstein" and "The Bride of Frankenstein," and died in an apparent suicide in a Hollywood pool in 1957. As the drama unfolds, Whale, who has suffered a stroke, becomes a melancholy recluse enlivening the end of his days by spinning out fantasies around the handsome young gardener, Clayton Boone, who has suddenly appeared in his life. Whale begins to stage a plot with Boone at its center--not a plot of seduction, but something far more complex, leading both men on a journey toward mutual understanding and self-discovery.
