The moving, poignant, and darkly funny story of a physically-challenged young man, the small town target of cruel jokes, who becomes starry-eyed when an American film crew comes to a rural outpost near his community to shoot a major motion picture. "Cripple Billy" eventually finds some respect and affection from among those who were the genesis of the ridicule. But, in the hands of master dramatist Martin McDonagh, when Billy finds redemption among the townsfolk, a final twist of fate turns the tables again, in true mythic fashion.
