As a boy on Cape Breton Island, Frank Curtis loses his arm in a hunting accident. He recovers to become the undisputed champion of world armwrestling . Frank learns of fame, admiration and riches but the crowds drift away and glory ends. Frank ends up as a circus sideshow before general wastage, homelessness and finally imprisonment. He serves his time and when he comes out, Frank returns to Cape Breton Island.
