Benny Berdino, the owner of one of Europe’s biggest circus, has a dream. To make sure that his dynasty will carry on, he hopes that his grandson, Patrick Berdino, and the award winning circus artist Merrylu Casselly will marry and one day carry on Circus Arena. With their looks and skills they would be the perfect match.
Everything seems to be going according to plan, as Patrick and Merrylu have moved into their own caravan. But his dream is threatened, because mixing love and business is difficult and the Casselly family is offered a lucrative contract from the biggest circus in the world, Ringling Brothers, in the USA.
