The Butterfly Circus Hey look! Can we go there? CARNIVAL SIDESHOW Ah...Sammy, you're breaking my heart. We're all the circus you need, kid. But they have rides. Can we, Mr. Mendez? Why not? Let's go... CARNIVAL OK boys, time to get me a date with the bearded lady. Who's with me? Great witches. Come. Sit down. I tell you all about your fate. Great witches.Come. I'm going to come and get you now. I'm going to get you if I can. Come on in, ladies and gentlemen, we have the best freak show in town. Step right on in. Come on in ladies and gentlemen. We have Lady Lalu... Come on in, ladies and gentlemen, come on in. We have the best show in town. Come on in, come on in. We have the best freaks in town. She's a woman of extraordinary weight. She has a huge appetite. For whole chickens. Now, down this way. The painted man. His world travels can be seen on every inch of his body - from head to toe. And now... ladies and gentlemen, gather in A perversion of nature. A man. If you could even call him that. Whom God himself has turned his back upon. I give you...The Limbless Man! Oh... will you look at that. So sad. Look at him. Move along, kids. You are...magnificent. Hey, get away from him. What's the matter with you? It's alright. No harm in it. My fault. Maybe I got a little too close, 'ey friend? Have a good evening, now. You'd better get a hold of yourself before the next show, gimp. Real nice, Will. Seems you changed your mind about joining one of them fancy shows. What are you saying? Don't you know nothing? That was Mendez. You just spit on the Showman! From the Butterfly Circus. Butterfly...butterfly... You kill me Will! I'm hungry. I'm going to get me some cotton candy. A man - if you can call him that - whom God himself has turned his back upon. The Limbless Man! mmm... ah... muy bien. Good Morning. Buenos dias. Buenos dias indeed! Yes...! May I have this dance? Thank you so much. Pappy... Would you get my trunk? It's so heavy. But it's easier for you, because you're so strong. Ah! There's a dead man in the truck! What? Well, now. Look at this. This is wonderful! Come on over by the fire and warm up a bit, little man. I'm Sammy. What's your name? I'm Will. Where are your arms and legs? Sammy. What, mama? Is he going to be in our circus now? Um...maybe I will. Hold on a minute. We don't have a side show here. What do you mean? Every circus has one. People come from all over the place to see us. And why do they come, Will? But...but yours could be different. No. There is nothing inspiring about amazing perfections on display. See, Will. We're happier here. And you can stay as long as you like. But I do run a different show. And now, one of the greatest displays of human contortion ever seen. It is my pleasure to introduce...Anna! Queen of the air. And the strongest man you'll ever see. The Master of the flying trapeze and the oldest performer in the air - Pappy! Wow. See you at the fairgrounds. Two days only. Come on by. Butterfly Circus. Two days only. How do (you do)? My boy here would sure like to say hello to the strongest man in town. Well, I'm sure your daddy's stronger, but I'd make a close second. Wow. Are you in the show too, mister? ...uh, um... no, not exactly. Oh. We'd best be going now. Thank you kindly. You bet. Wow! Did you see that, Dad? I'm going to be the strongest man in the world someday. I'll be just like that man. I'll lift anything I want. Yeah, boy. You can do whatever you want.

"What I like most about filmmaking is the opportunity to combine so many art forms--story, images, light, drama, sound and music. Then to see the power it has when all these different forms of expression are brought together in the massive venue of a movie theater--little compares." Joshua Weigel - Director
