His whole adult life, Sebastién has lived for the thrill of the circus and wanted for little else. Now older than the rest of the troupe, he struggles to face up to the impending demise of his career.
With no other bookings in the diary, this trip to Puglia, in the heat of the Italian summer, could be his last. His doting mothers in Paris feel his angst, while fearing for his every fall. The thrill is as great as ever. But an uncertain future awaits. Jay Bedwani’s beautifully languid documentary catches the final leap of a long, idyllic youth.
