Little Aglaya was raised in a circus since she was born. Her mother is an acrobat and her father, a clown. Aglaya too would have had a circus career there if her parents hadn't argued with the arrogant circus director and been forced to leave everything behind and flee the country. They manage to find work in a circus in Switzerland but the future is certainly not rosy for them there either. This poetic story is presented through the eyes of a child and set in a circus milieu with echoes of events from the second half of the 20th century. Despite its dreamy atmosphere, the story is based on real life events of writer, Aglaya Veteranyi.
