In front of the television cameras, Harrison rips away his grotesque weights and mask to reveal the apex of male form and function. He does the same to the ballerina to reveal feminine perfection. Together they dance and defy the laws of gravity. They show the people what is possible when human form and spirit are set free. Unfortunately their show does not last long before Diana Moon Glampers, the Handicapper General, puts a stop to it.
