Once upon a time, an inventor (Vincent Price) created a man with scissors instead of hands called Edward (Johnny Depp). Since he died before finishing his creation, Edward remained alone in his mansion, until one day a door-to-door saleslady named Peggy Boggs (Dianne West) met him. Deeply touched by Edward’s situation, she decided to bring him home with her. Then, Edward got to know Peggy’s family and neighborhood. Everybody was quite impressed at first, but when they realised how kind he was, they finally welcomed him into their community. They even tried to help him starting his own business since he could cut trees and style women’s hair with his scissorhands. Nevertheless, not everyone accepted him. When Edward fell in love with Peggy’s daughter, Kim (Winona Ryder), things began to get out of hands when Jim (Anthony Michael Hall), her boyfriend, took advantage of him. From this moment, Edward had trouble fitting in his new life…
