  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Jeffrey Marshall is a professional musician, born without arms or legs. But do people come to his shows to listen to the music or to stare at the spectacle of how he's playing? In The Last Freak Show we join him in Nashville as he promotes his debut album before heading out to explore his personal and cultural identity as a disabled performer by becoming the star attraction in the last remaining freak show in America.
