In this routine, slow-paced circus thriller, Bimbo (Claus Holm) is an elephant trainer and a high-wire artist who suffers the tragic death of his wife Marianne (Marina Orachel) in an apparent accident. As time goes by, he rightfully becomes suspicious that the "accident" was anything but, and he starts to look for her killer. Meanwhile, the circus acts continue to entertain, while Bimbo eventually gets a confession out of the guilty party, made slightly more suspenseful because a big-top fire is starting to kindle at the same time.
