Bee was orphaned at a very young age and now she is living with a traveling carnival and trying to keep from becoming one of the freak show exhibits.  Bee has a large birthmark on her face and she tries to keep to herself.  Pauline runs the hotdog stand and is the closest thing Bee has to a mother.  When Pauline leaves to work at another carnival, Bee takes off in search of a real home.  Together with her pets, she finds a home with two mysterious women who take her in and offer her a home.  But there is something very odd about these women.  Why is it that Bee is the only one who can see them?
