The year is 1884 and the Paris Opera House is at last ready to re-open its doors. Answering an advertisement for the position of costume designer and seamstress, Genevieve Devereaux wants only a simple existence and a means to support herself after escaping a troubled and violent marriage. Once a member of the glittering Parisian nobility, Genevieve abandons her old identity and finds in the theater the ideal environment to live in peace and do work she enjoys. A year has passed since the infamous disaster that almost left the Opera in ruins, but beneath the stage in the catacombs below, the supposed madman rumored to be the Opera Ghost still lives. With his life in tatters and his heart mad with grief, Erik finds in Genevieve a woman with her own secrets and everything to lose.
Breaking his year-long silence, the Phantom of the Opera takes up his game to resurrect his reign of terror and secure the object of his desperate obsession, the now married Christine de Chagny, using Genevieve as his unwilling pawn. But with each confrontation, a heated tension begins to grow between them, binding them more irrevocably together.
As the shadow of Genevieve's violent past closes in, will finding someone just as broken as he is convince Erik to step off the path that will inevitably lead to his own self-destruction?
Inspired by the original novel by Gaston Leroux.
