The story about the outcast, Herbert Khaury’s rise to stardom as Tiny Tim, is the ultimate fairytale. And so is his downfall. Either considered a freak or a genius, Tiny Tim left no one unaffected. His very own wedding on the Carson Show was watched by over 45 million Americans and his queer personality has been celebrated by the likes of Bob Dylan, Marilyn Manson and Lady Gaga. There were plans and hopes that Tiny Tim would be a lasting star, not only a novelty act. But one man ruined these plans - Tiny Tim himself. Exclusive access to Tiny Tim’s diaries and interviews with his family and friends make this film not only a unique portrait of one of the oddest stars the world has ever seen, but also a psychological thriller, examining the borderline between freak and genius.
