A love story between the heir to the largest circus in the Nordic countries and the daughter of one of the world’s best artist families. A film about love, families and duty.
The crown prince of Circus Arena, Patrick Berdino, and the beautiful circus artist Merrylu Castelly have become a couple. Ever since they were children, it has been their parents’ dream that the two of them should get together, and that the two of them should lead the largest circus dynasty on.
But the dream is threatened. It is hard to live up to the expectations of the circus world when you’ve just turned 20. And who knows if the love between the young couple, and the close relation between the families can withstand that time changes – even in a world where old traditions and norms rule.
