At the turn of the last century, a traveling Freakshow grinds to a halt. Things are changing. The anger of being stared at, trapped, caged, is at war with the comfort of knowing your place in the universe. But the growing defiance of the freaks is no act. Will the Dog Faced Woman break her bonds from the show, collapsing the fragile bubble of sustaining interdependence? Can the jaded Ringmaster, a profoundly broken man, find redemption through his love for the Woman With No Arms and No Legs? In this poetic, gritty world, there may only be one way out.
