It's hard to earn your keep in the filth and thrill of a travelling sideshow in Georgian England. But when Dr Fox, a gentleman stranger, joins the fair, Mim gets top billing at last, as the Electrical Venus. Now each night men jostle to pay a penny and recieve an electrifying kiss from her lips. But is this starring role her true value? Is love worth more than a penny? When love comes, does it feel like a spark?
