EN - In the 1950s, the Kavaros circus is in financial distress. After an accident in the ring, 17-year-old acrobat Juul falls into a coma and the doctor pronounces her brain-dead. Her father Bor, a magician, can't bear to be without his daughter and spirits her away from the hospital. Then, when he shows her off as a living puppet, audiences begin to return to the circus stands. In silent protest at the indignity of this, and at the loss of her free will, Juul slowly turns to porcelain.
