Thierry (Gerard Sandoz) drops out of school to apprentice as a lion tamer at a circus. But soon after, he and fellow trainee Roselyne (Isabelle Pasco) fall in love, he’s fired, and Roselyne leaves with him. The lovebirds journey across France looking for work, hitting up various circuses along the way. Finally they get closer to their aspirations when they’re hired on by a German circus in Munich and both fall under the tutelage of aging big cat trainer Klint (Gunter Meisner).
