Benny Berdino, the owner of one of Europe's biggest circus, has a dream. To make sure that his dynasty will continue to thrive, he hopes that his grandson, Patrick, and the award-winning circus artist Merrylu will marry and one day run Circus Arena. With their looks and skills they would be the perfect match. Everything seems to be going according to plan, as Patrick and Merrylu have moved into their own caravan. But his dream is threatened, because mixing love and business is difficult.
