This second version of the golem legend is set in 16th century Prague, the era in which Rabbi Loew has created the giant golem from clay in order to save the Jews from persecution by the despot Rudolf II.
Loew's assistant, Famulus, has different plans, however, as he takes control of the golem and orders it to perform criminal acts, among which is the kidnapping of Miriam, the Rabbi's daughter.
Rebelling against the sordid tasks set for him, the golem goes on a murderous rampage...
