Love and circuses drive this melodrama hailing from Stalin-era Russia. Marion Dixon is an American vaudeville performer managed by dastardly German Von Kneischitz. Between target-shooting from her trapeze, she falls in love with a square-jawed member of the Soviet proletariat. Will the beautiful trapeze artist join the Communist cause or will the evil capitalist stain her good name?
