In the seedy underworld of Victorian London, a boy is snatched up by an unscrupulous and abusive showman. Wild Boy, covered in hair from head to toe, becomes a sideshow freak. Isolated from other children and wickedly abused by the cruel master who bought him, he becomes an avid observer, developing Sherlock Holmes–like deductive skills.
