DDR 1973, Spielfilm

Inhalt

A few days after the end of World War II, the eleven-year-old orphan Julius is on the run from the destroyed city of Berlin. In a forest he meets the formerly imprisoned communist Kaiser. By chance, they both detect a horse at the same time. When they report the incidence in the next town, a Soviet commander obligates them to work at a traveling circus, which has set up camp on the outskirts. Kaiser even gets appointed ringmaster. Since it is very expensive to feed the circus′ main attraction, a lion, Kaiser thinks of using the horse as food. Julius, however, is horrified by this idea and takes flight together with the horse. After several adventures and after having made the acquaintance of a girl called Ulrike, who helps him to save the horse from a racketeer, Julius is again confronted with the lion: It has escaped and threatens Ulrike′s life. Now Julius is willing to sacrifice the horse. The lion, however, does not touch the horse since it knows the horses from the circus. Eventually, both the lion and the horse perform at the circus while Julius and Kaiser return to Berlin.
