Summary:

Inspired by the world-famous Cirque du Soleil, but more than a documentation of the live event, this film moves the Cirque's dreamlike imagery out of the Big Top and into the real world, introducing a narrative love story enacted by a distinguished international cast. Frac is a street mime whose love of performing and life has been overcome by a deep sorrow. His life changes upon meeting Giulietta, the lead singer and performer in the circus troupe. Together, with his 11-year-old friend, Momo, they embark on a journey of love and adventure.
