Filmmakers Roberto Berliner, Leonardo Crivelare, and Lula Queiroga collaborate on this documentary exploring the unique lives of seven Brazilian dwarves who have captured the heart of a nation with their traveling circus act. The Pindorama Circus was the family business, and after their father died a natural hierarchy seemed to emerge. These days, the seven brothers and sisters continue to enjoy the nomadic lifestyle while entertaining audiences all across the country. Common preconceptions about the lives of little people are gradually put to rest as viewers are invited into the troupe's tight-knit inner-circle, and colorful songs penned exclusively for each of the performers offer added insight into their colorful personalities.
