Down on their luck, stranded out on the moors of England, the "Three D's" are a trio of circus performers (a bear trainer and his wife plus the bear) who have attracted the unwelcome attention of a policeman, to whom they appear to be altogether shady characters. Not only that, but after a quarrel, Denise takes off and the bear dies. Don, the remaining member of the trio, attempts to cope with his losses by joining up with a circus, partnered with an attractive widow in a new act. His new trick involves walking up a ladder of razor-sharp swords. Just as everyone is getting settled, the aforementioned policeman shows up, accusing Don of having murdered Denise. After proving him wrong about that, Don is almost back to normal when Denise herself shows up, and everything becomes much more complicated.
