Behind the Big Top

An observational documentary introduces Sven, retired circus veteran who lives with his circus animals in the quietness of Western Finland. Sven, parrots and horses spend their retirement days practicing new tricks, while dozens of old circus vans and trailers are rusting among them. If Sven manages to fix one of his old vans, they’ll hit the road again for a new tour.
