SYNOPSIS:
The bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in fifteenth-century Paris. Quasimodo, a deformed bell-ringer who longs to be “Out There,” observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, Archdeacon Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. — But Quasi isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit. Handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies. It’s up to Quasi — with a little help from his magical gargoyle friends — to save them all.
