Synopsis

This compassionate documentary offers snapshots of a number of people living productive lives while coping with physical abnormalities. Beginning at a sideshow in a Florida carnival, we meet a pair of conjoined twins, a hirsute woman billing herself as 'Monkey Girl,' a man claiming to be the world's fattest human and more. An interview with Hollywood celebrity Billy Barty introduces a segment about dwarfism and gigantism while segueing into other profiles across the U.S. and Canada.
