Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Disabled from birth due to the ravaging side effects of thalidomide, filmmaker Niko von Glasow embarks on a quest to find 11 others like him who are willing to pose for nude photographs illustrating the deformities that are just a normal part of their everyday lives. By photographing "thalidomiders" in their natural state, von Glasow offers onlookers the opportunity to witness just how the human body can respond to the drug without making the observer feel awkward about their curiosity, or the observed feel as if they're the object of intense scrutiny. Over the course of the film, the director speaks at length with his subjects about their experiences growing up, and their feelings about the project.
