"When local Avon seller Peg Boggs fails to make any profits in her neighborhood, she, on the strength of a whim, visits a pseudo-medieval mansion located on a hill above the town. She discovers an elaborate topiary garden, a derelict interior, and Edward, who is an artificial man created by the late owner of the house. This man, a reclusive, eccentric inventor, died while trying to place a long-delayed pair of hands on his creation, leaving him with many long, metal, scissor-like blades instead. Touched by Edward's loneliness, Peg brings him home to her family; Edward thus must adjust to life in the suburbs. He falls in love with Peg's teenage daughter Kim, who is frightened by Edward at first, but grows to love him through successive acts of compassion on her part. Kim's conformist neighbors, while initially thrilled at his skills at hedge clipping and haircutting, grow to distrust Edward because of his dangerous condition. Two of these, a Christian fanatic called Esmeralda and Kim's thuggish sweetheart Jim, dislike him from the start. Eventually, Jim attempts to implicate Edward in theft; Edward is arrested, but is released when a psychological examination reveals that his isolation had allowed him to live without a traditional sense of ethics.
At one point thereafter, Peg's husband Bill Boggs asks Edward about what to do if he finds a briefcase full of money. Edward, not thinking about whence the money came or realizing it might have an owner, selflessly declares that he would give all of the money to loved ones. Later, neighbor Joyce suggests that Edward open a haircutting salon with her; when examining a proposed site, she attempts to seduce him. Edward, partly confused, flees the room.
Around Christmas time, Edward is almost totally ostracized by everyone except for the Boggs family. This is due to a failed robbery attempt by Kim's boyfriend on his own family to gain insurance money. He uses Edward, who can easily unlock doors to gain entrance but the alarm is set off and Edward is abandoned to face the police. This capture turns the neighborhood against him, along with Joyce's lies of Edward's attempted rape and Esmerelda's preachings. While the family decorates the house for the holidays, Edward uses his blades to carve an angel out of a large block of ice. The ice shavings fall to the ground, creating an effect of snow, which was unknown in the area before. Kim comes outside to dance in it, creating a joyful experience for herself. Jim calls her by name; at this, both she and Edward turn around suddenly. Edward's hand accidentally gives Kim a shallow cut. Jim sees this and tries to use this as an excuse to turn the town against Edward. He succeeds in this to a large extent; Edward is hunted back to his creator's mansion, where the police deceive the mob following him into assuming that he is dead.
Kim, refusing to believe this, or anything bad, of Edward, hastens to enter the mansion. There, she reunites with Edward. Jim follows them and attempts to kill his rival. Though beaten initially, Edward reacts to Jim's ill-treatment and beating of Kim by pushing him violently through the old mansion window. Edward's fingers stab Jim to the heart, killing him. Kim kisses Edward, then goes downstairs and tells the townspeople that both of her suitors are dead. To "prove" this, she holds up a scissored implement which she has taken from the late inventor's laboratory.
The film begins and ends with an elderly Kim telling her granddaughter the story of her relationship with Edward Scissorhands. When the granddaughter asks Kim how she knows that Edward is still alive in the castle, Kim answers to this effect; Before Edward came, snow never fell on the valley, whereas after he left, it fell. Kim attributes the snow to Edward and remarks that she still dances in it. Subsequently, we see Edward, who has not aged at all, creating an ice sculpture in the attic of his mansion. He is surrounded by other ice sculptures that he has created, including one of a young girl dancing, much like Kim had done. As Edward works, the flurry of ice shavings is thrown, presumably by Edward himself, onto the valley and onto the town below. This proves Kim's assumption that Edward's work is the source of the snowfall. The film ends with a flashback of a young Kim joyfully twirling in the snowflakes and snow pouring from the mansions broken windows. (Source: WikiPedia. Written by Glitter-Shimmer.) "
