In the harsh company of a travelling side-show, Mim doesn't know what love looks like. But when a stranger joins the fair and chooses Mim to be part of his awesome new act of 'electrickery', Mim is elevated to the role of 'Electrical Venus'. Is this starring role her true worth, or is love worth more than a penny for an electrifying kiss? An intoxicating and atmospheric examination of our attitudes to race, disability and self-worth through a love story set in the filth and thrill of a travelling show during the height of Georgian Enlightenment.
