This drama is set in the early years of the 20th century. Josef, a former construction worker who delighted in dancing on girders high above the city sweeps up in the circus. Once the big top's owner spots the young roustabout defying gravity on the trapeze, he endeavors to pair Josef with his aerialist daughter Alice in a perilous sky-high pas de deux.

James Thiérrée , born in 1974, is the grandson of Charlie Chaplin and the son of Jean-Baptiste Thiérrée (co-founder of the renowned Cirques Bonjour, Imaginaire, and Invisible). As a child, Thiérrée appeared in his parents’ productions and later studied trapeze and acrobatics, violin, and dramatic arts. He appeared in Peter Greenaway’s film PROSPERO'S BOOKS and in starring roles in the independent films BYE BYE BLACKBIRD (nominated for an award at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival) and LIBERTE (2009). He has worked in theater productions by Robert Wilson, Beno Besson, and Carlos Santos. In 1998, he founded La Compagnie du Hanneton and began to create his own work.
