Synopsis:
Gibsonton, Florida, is not your ordinary small town. It is a very special place for very special circus people - which FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully quickly learn when they go there to investigate a murder.

In trying to find out who killed the Alligator Man, Jason Glazebrook, in his very own swimming pool, they turn up some fascinating suspects - from Dr. Blockhead, who'd rather chew needles than gum, and sleeps on a bed of nails, to the town sheriff, whose past is just as colorful as the town he guards.

As the list of murder victims grows, Mulder and Scully discover that nothing in Gibsonton is what it seems. Trapped in a sideshow world of flimflam fakery where only danger is real, even the X-Files experts are getting weirded out...
