Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
Zygfryd (Gustaw Holoubek) is a circus acrobat who lives with the owner Waldo (Jan Nowicki) and his wife Maria (Maria Pakulnis) in this tragic drama. The young acrobat is attracted to the beautiful Maria, who performs as a bareback rider in her own act. Zygfryd's exciting act is witnessed by wealthy recluse Stefan Drawicz (Tomasz Hudziec), who befriends the young performer, and Stefan changes his friend's life by introducing him to cultural events and opening his mind. Although grateful for the experience, Zygfryd's newly acquired appreciation of life leaves him depressed over his banal existence as a circus performer.
