Both a historical thriller and a vast portrait of the status of women, the Musée Eden television series presents an extraordinary police investigation into the beginnings of forensic medicine and criminal journalism in Quebec. This singular story begins in 1910 in Montreal, where several assassinations are committed without the perpetrator being found. Camille and Florence Courval, two young Manitoban women, have just inherited the Eden Museum, a wax museum specializing in criminal news. With the help of Dr. Boyer, a forensic scientist adept in new scientific investigation techniques, and Étienne Monestier, an as-reporter for the criminal press, they will launch a tumultuous investigation to unmask the murderer. By penetrating into the Montreal underworld, Camille and Florence will discover a world of violence, misery and injustice populated by underage prostitutes, corrupt police officers, opium-addicted abortionists, cursed artists, high-flying burglars and hallucinated assassins. All these encounters will shake their moral convictions and ideas about life and human nature, but the two sisters will always remain faithful to each other. During this journey into the heart of darkness, Camille and Florence will also be confronted with love. Each in their own way, they will live a great passion that will change their lives forever.
