But a meeting with a kind doctor holds the hope to change his life ...Based on the famous true story of Joseph Merrick, Elephant Man is a powerful tale about being different, finding happiness in even the hardest circumstances, and discovering beauty inside everyone.The unforgettable true story of one young man's immense courage and his unbreakable spirit.
