This somber drama illustrates the cruel lengths some people will go to capitalize on unfortunate human oddities. When a beggar woman dies, her relatives fight over her son who has an enlarged head from having water on the brain. He is taken on tours of county fairs where his condition brings in money from slack-jawed yokels who stare in disbelief. When the boy is left unattended in a local tavern, he dies from alcohol poisoning. Even in death, the body is put on display in an effort to profit from his unfortunate disability.
