A glorious vision of circus life in the days of the Great Depression. Young Jacob, forced to give up his veterinary studies, finds himself looking after the animals with a travelling circus, where he catches the eye of the glamorous bare-back rider, Marlena. However, Marlena is married to the sadistic circus ring-master, August, who is in the habit of throwing those he dislikes off moving trains. Will Jacob and Marlena’s love prevail and what will become of the elephant?
