À la fin du XVIII siècle, dans un château proche d'un petit village français, vivait un jeune prince capricieux, égoïste et insensible. Pour avoir refusé d'abriter une fée déguisée en vieille mendiante, il est condamné à vivre sous l'apparence d'une bête monstrueuse jusqu'à ce qu'il puisse aimer une femme et s'en faire aimer en retour, ce qui le délivrerait du sortilège qui a frappé son château et ses habitants. Mais les années passent et la Bête perd peu à peu tout espoir de rompre un jour la malédiction.
