These are stories of astonishing human courage and a powerful passion for life, no matter how much the odds are stacked against the afflicted people. In the first episode, the incredible ‘up-side down man’ faces surgery for the first time since he was born. A young girl has a tumour than is threatening to eat her face up and the modern day ‘elephant man’ faces a medical test that could mean life or death. Plus, an incredibly thin cyclist has a condition that doctors simply cannot diagnose, and a set of triplets suffer from a rare skull-crushing affliction that, if operated on, would likely causes fatal complications for them.
Portraying a bravery rarely seen and testing medical expertise to the very limits, ‘Body Bizarre’ uncovers the truth behind the headlines.
