As a young boy Gwynplaine, the son of a disfavoured Lord, becomes the victim of revenge against his father -- the King orders the boy have a permanent smile carved onto is face. Abandoned by his captors in the winter snow, he finds a baby girl in the arms of her dead mother. They are taken in by a travelling freak show and Gwynplaine becomes a popular attraction. As they grow up together, Gwynplaine falls in love with Dea, the child he rescued, who is blind, and she with him. Unaware of his true identity, Gwynplaine becomes unwittingly drawn back into the world of politics that had left him so horrifically scarred many years ago...
