The New York Times describes this documentary as "the science of contortion and. . . the performers who've made their livelihood twisting their bodies in amazing ways. Viewers meet Undarma, the only contortionist to have her own Las Vegas show; Lars Houga, a German performer who feels that sexuality is an intricate part of his art; Daniel Brown, who performs with Jim Rose's Circus sideshow; and a young girl named Sonya, who's just beginning her training as a contortionist." The program also features interviews with psychologist Cheryl Arutt, Psy.D. who explores psychological issues that both attract and repel people to contortionism, and a physician who reveal the special medical problems the art of contortionism sometimes causes.
