Edward Scissorhands

Is it a handicap or a talent?

Edward (Johnny Depp) wasn't born, he was created by an inventor who died before his hands were completed. So instead of fingers, Edward has scissors. When the isolated youth is discovered and brought into regular society, his blade-like fingers are both a source of beautiful talent and a dangerous handicap.
