Nadia Markiewicz plays the role of a fictional, historical freak – a performer known under the stage name The Lonesome Wing, who, according to rumors, was born with the wing of a white bird instead of one arm. Previously employed in a traveling circus and as a magician's dove, she reappears to perform after years of absence.
