Director: Anders Riis-Hansen
Once upon a time, there were two famous circus families. In the same year, they had a son and a daughter each of them respectively. Parents dreamt for their children to fall in love with each other, to get married and to create a new – the most famous of all – circus dynasty. This real story began as a fairy tale, but life transformed many things for Patrick Berdino and Merrylu Casselly.
