In search of her future, a young circus artist is guided down three paths of circus performers. The traveling Carnival with mesmerizing hoops and glass walkers, the Traditional 3-Ring Circus with dazzling jugglers and graceful aerialist, and the Nouveau Cirque artists with their dramatic acrobats and unique ropers. They each offer their advice on the art of performance. Of course, they all think their way is the right way. Will this overwhelming information empower the budding aerialist or will it cause her to be the first case of “running AWAY from the circus?” Only one way to find out!
