Despite his inability to speak or hear, Malcolm Shanks (Marcel Marceau) has a talent for puppetry, which earns him a job assisting scientist Walker (also Marceau), who, by connecting wires to corpses and manipulating them as a puppet master would, is investigating how to revive the dead. When Walker himself dies, Shanks successfully takes over the operation.
