Product Description: Welcome to the contemporary Freak Show! A woman trying to have a child has a parasitic twin, an extra lower torso, and set of legs named Bianca - should she have "Bianca''s Body" removed to improve her chances at conception? A bearded lady considers coming out of the closet about her hirsute nature, while carrying on a battle of wills with an overeating patron in "Mr. Chicken." A woman with four ears gets a chance to make extra money as the mascot of a tattoo parlour, and encounters a middle-aged, cookie-baking stalker who believes she is a sign that the end of the world is nigh. Meet the "freaks"-they''re mothers, wives, and lovers: all of them trying negotiate a world that is quicker to stare than sympathize.
