Description:
Deep within the Balou mountains lies a small rural town populated by disabled people. Blind, deaf, and disfigured, the 197 citizens of the village of Liven have until now enjoyed a peaceful, mutually supportive life out of sight and mind of the government. But when an unseasonal snowstorm wipes out that years crops, a county official dreams up a money-making scheme that will boost his career and raise money for the district. He convinces the villagers to set up a travelling freak-show showcasing their disabilities.
