Sinossi

Londra, seconda metà dell'Ottocento. A causa di una malattia molto rara, la neurofibromatosi, che gli ha dato sembianze mostruose, il giovane John Merrick viene esposto come "uomo elefante" nel baraccone di Bytes, un alcolizzato che campa sfruttando la sua mostruosità e lo tratta come una bestia. E' qui che Merrick viene scoperto dal dottor Frederick Treves, un chirurgo del London Hospital che convince Bytes a cederglielo per qualche tempo in modo da poterlo studiare e curare. Portato in ospedale e presentato a un congresso di scienziati, John si rivela ben presto agli occhi di Treves come un uomo di intelligenza superiore e di animo raffinato e sensibile.
