Talented singer Christine Daae (Teri Polo) is sent to the Paris Opera House by her benefactor, Count Philippe de Chagny (Adam Storke), for vocal instruction. Upon arrival, her natural talent is rejected by arrogant opera director Cholet (Ian Richardson), but she is taken under the wing of the disfigured Erik (Charles Dance) -- who masquerades as the vengeful Phantom of the Opera. Erik's unrequited love and jealousy lead him to lure Christine to his underground lair, with tragic results.
Up-and-coming Houston oil executive "Mac" MacIntyre (Peter Riegert) gets more than he bargained for when a seemingly simple business trip to Scotland changes his outlook on life. Sent by his colorful boss (Burt Lancaster) to the small village of Ferness, Mac is looking to quickly buy out the townspeople so his company can build a new refinery. But after a taste of country life Mac begins to question whether he is on the right side of this transaction.
