Frances Belle O'Connor, the Living Venus de Milo, was born without arms in 1914 in Minnesota. Over the course of her long show career, O'Connor worked for the Al G. Barnes, Cole Brothers, and Sells-Floto circuses; but O'Connor is perhaps best remembered for having appeared with several other top acts of the day in Tod Browning's infamous film, Freaks (1932).
One hot summer day, somewhere in American suburbia, a high school teacher (Simon Baker) & his wife (Frances O'Connor) befriend a 15-year-old boy (Gregory Smith) who works at a local ice cream store. But all is not as it seems in this idyllic setting, as the boy soon becomes a "complication" for the two adults.
