The fabulous destiny of Marie Tussaud, the woman with the wax masks! Paris, 1793. Marie Crossholz manages the wax museum set up by her father. Against remuneration, some executioners allow her to mould the faces of guillotined aristocrats... After the French revolution, Marie Crossholz became Mrs Tussaud. Disappointed by the marriage, she leaves for London with the ambition to create a wax museum there. New fights and other tumultuous adventures wait for her... Thirty years later, in 1835, she will inaugurate the famous Tussaud museum of the Baker Street in London, which, since that time, always grows with new celebrities and does not cease to attract million of visitors!
