To the world he seems a paragon of virtue -- a healer, a social reformer. But Dr. Jekyll knows better. Troubled by his own attraction to secret vice, disturbed by the passion he feels for the handsome young widow Anne Coggeshall, Jekyll embarks on a series of experiments he feels will greatly benefit all mankind -- attempts to separate good from evil within his own personality. His attempts succeed and Jekyll begins to live two lives -- as the doctor he remains the dignified embodiment of a Victorian gentleman while as Edward Hyde, he becomes the dashing, diabolical hedonist who will stop at nothing.
