The beautiful gypsy Esmeralda is condemned as a witch by the tormented archdeacon Claude Frollo, who lusts after her. But Quasimodo, the deformed bell ringer of Notre-Dame Cathedral, having fallen in love with her, tries to save her by hiding her in the cathedral's tower. When a crowd of Parisian peasants, misunderstanding Quasimodo's motives, attacks the church in an attempt to liberate her, the story ends in tragedy.
