Paul Orlac, a concert pianist, loses his hands in an accident. To enable him to resume piano playing, his surgeon decides to transplant Orlac the hands of a recently executed robber and murderer. But although Orlac completely recovers from the accident, his virtuosity of piano playing has vanished. Furthermore, he gets more and more absorbed by the delusion that he had not only received the murderer's hands but also his disposition to brutality.
