Based upon the life of Joseph Merrick, a man so physically deformed and desperate that he became known as the “Elephant Man.”

With very few options open to him, Merrick is forced to display himself to the public in travelling sideshows.

Eventually, luck or destiny lead him to find himself alone and destitute in London.

Due to the kindness of one Dr. Frederick Treves, Merrick is soon admitted into the London Hospital for care and observation. Treves becomes determined to help Merrick lead a normal life with the support of the public after publishing a letter in The Times and London’s finest hoi polloi, Merrick soon becomes the toast of society.

However, John Merrick -The Elephant Man, finds that normality isn’t something he can achieve, and is that something he necessarily even wants?​
