A bankrupt merchant living in exile in the countryside with his children returns to the city with the hope of going back into business. He gets lost in the forest and takes refuge in a mysterious castle inhabited by the Beast, who takes him prisoner. The merchant asks the Beast for forgiveness and begs to see his family one last time. Back home, he tells his story and the deal he has struck with the Beast. Belle, the youngest of his children, offers herself as a prisoner in her father’s stead. At the castle, she learns of the curse that has transformed a beautiful prince into a monstrous beast. Little by little, a friendship develops between Belle and the Beast. Attacked by bandits and mortally wounded, the Beast is saved from death by Belle’s love.
