Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A young blue-blood abandons his life of luxury to join a traveling carnival in this downbeat melodrama. Wealthy Vincent is about to marry the woman of his dreams when she learns he has lost it all in the stock market crash, and leaves him at the altar. Depressed and destitute, Vincent hits the road, and joins the circus - where he becomes friends with a pugilist and petty thief. When the high diver is injured, Vincent takes over the act. Later, the burgeoning performer is growing accustomed to life in the spotlight when the deposed daredevil attempts to make a comeback. When the two performers trade blows, the fight ends in tragedy, leaving Vincent to rely on the help of his new friends to avoid a murder rap.
