Based on the life of John Merrick, a man living with horrifying, rare skin and bone diseases in the latter part of the nineteenth century. Seen as a freak by society, his life changes when a celebrated young physician, Frederick Treves, agrees to care for him. Merrick quickly becomes a favorite of the English aristocracy - an acceptance that comes with a heavy price.
