About the film

Visually stunning, unsettling first feature about disfigured individuals is a wonderfully subversive and utterly moving piece of cinema.

A pregnant dwarf, a boy who think she’s a mermaid, a prostitute without eyes, a hopeless romantic with half her face melting off her skull and a lady with an anus in her face instead of a mouth – all of them look for love and a place in society.

They all live and love hidden away in strangely artificial interiors. As ‘freaks’, they rarely go out onto the street. A confrontation with the rest of the world could have fatal consequences.
