Description

The tiny, isolated fising village of Large Mouth never saw much excitement -- until the arrival of the stranger, that is. Wrapped from head to toe in bandages and wearing weird goggles, he quietly took up residence in the sleepy town's motel.Driven by curiousity, the townfolk quickly learn the tragic story of his past, and of the terrible accident that left him horribly disfigured. Eventually, the town embraces the stranger as one of their own -- but do his bandages hide more than just scars?
