Film maker David Hoffman uploaded this video to his YouTube channel a few hours ago and says it's "The strangest story" he's ever filmed. This video tells the true story of a woman named Emmeline, and it's definitely a strange and tragic story.

The video description on Hoffman's YouTube channel says "After I filled this interview, I convinced PBS to allow me to make a documentary to investigate this story. The documentary, made with director Rocky Collins, is called Sins Of Our Mothers. And I took the story to author Judith Rossner who wrote the book Emmeline about the story. An opera was also written about the story also Emmeline."

As you'll see in the video below, this is a pretty bizarre story.

Have you ever heard of the story of Emmeline?
