A day without laughter is the most wasted of all days, according to veteran circus performer Jan Erik, a.k.a 'Fips the Clown'. So when his back goes in the middle of the summer tour round Scotland, it's no joke. Through following the trials and tribulations of training new girl Mahri to work with his younger partner Emile, this film gives an insight into the realities of modern-day circus life on the road.
