In Freaks, four high-school friends suffer daily humiliation at the hands of three bullies. When the friends accidentally open a portal to another dimension, they unintentionally allow terrifying, other-worldly creatures to invade their small Arkansas town. Discovering that they are now endowed with strange superpowers, the four teens dub themselves “Freaks,” the very name their tormentors used to ridicule them. The “Freaks” must fight to save the lives of family and friends now in mortal peril and thwart a secret government task force intent on capturing them.

Packed with action, teenage angst, and suspense, Freaks appeals to fans of Stranger Things and X-Men. As the four friends gain self-awareness and come to terms with their peculiar powers and the responsibility that comes along with them, they struggle to redefine themselves, the true meaning of friendship, and their roles in their families and community. The Freaks, who know better than anyone what it is to be bullied, must fight to avoid becoming bullies themselves.
