Mary Vivian Pearce is the lead, although she is dead through most of the film. While on a walk, she is run-down by a car driven by Divine (who isn't such a bad driver, she just got distracted by the naked man hitch-hiking). Divine then takes it upon herself to care for the dead girl. For her good deeds, Divine is visited by the Virgin Mary. The girl is brought to a mad-doctor, played by David Lochary, who replaces her feet with very ugly feet.
