While their circus is parked in the outskirts of Rome, a knife thrower’s assistant finds an abandoned girl named Asia. Can the aging performers cope with a new addition to their ranks? The first dramatic feature from Italo-Austrian documentary filmmakers Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel, who lived with the circus during the shoot.
