In the present day, immortal 1,000-year-old Doctor Parnassus (Plummer) leads a traveling theater troupe that offers audience members a chance to go beyond reality through a magical mirror in his possession. Members of the troupe include a sleight of hand expert, Anton; and a dwarf, Percy. Parnassus had been able to guide the imagination of others through a deal with the Devil, who now comes to collect on the arrangement, targeting the doctor's daughter (Cole). The troupe, who is joined by a mysterious outsider named Tony (Ledger), embark through parallel worlds to rescue the girl.
