The Bird Girl
Living a life of solitude in a remote asylum, Amity's world is shaken when she's scooped up by an enterprising ringmaster and finds herself the centerpiece of a travelling freak show. Amity's multitudinous deformities allow her to blossom as "The Bird Girl." She enjoys her spotlight while simultaneously being deluged with memories of her earlier life, one spent hidden in shadows by a mother humiliated by the living evidence of her broken womb.
