Les Juifs de Prague sont écrasés sous le joug du chancelier Lang, un juif qui a renié sa foi, et qui exerce le pouvoir pendant que l'empereur Rodolphe II s'adonne à la débauche. Le rabbin Loew a autrefois créé le Golem, créature d'argile à la force surnaturelle, qui dort au fond d'un grenier. Un jeune rabbin, qui connait le secret, va lui redonner vie pour sauver son peuple.
The Jews of Prague are being ruthlessly oppressed by Chancellor Lang, an apostate Jew, who serves the empire as its chancellor, while Emperor Rudolf II concerns himself with the occult and his vast store of collectibles. A century earlier, Rabbi Loew created the Golem and gave it life. The Golem was his servant and protector of the ghetto. When Rabbi Loew died, the Golem was left to rot in the attic of the synagogue. However, instructions were left behind to re-animate the creature should the Jews of the ghetto once more be imperiled. Rabbi Loew's successor knows the spell to awaken the Golem; and now, a century later, he will bring the creature to life to save the Jews from a cruel fate.
