  • Overview
    The story is not for the squeamish. After the death of a beggar, her family fights for custody of her deformed hydro-cephalic dwarf of a son, not out of charitable instincts but because the guardian can make good money exhibiting him as a freak at county fairs. Pitilessly taunted for the amusement of the crowd, the dwarf himself dies, and his body is left outside, drawing the attention of a herd of pigs. The dwarf’s aunt, who has been his main exploiter, has an affair with a villainous drifter and is violently hounded by the townsfolk.
