Sawdust Tales

Sawdust Tales is a whimsical and timeless parable on survival in hard times and the force of a first love against all odds. In a timeless no-manÍs land scarred by social decay and imminent war, a circus troupe awaits the arrival of the mysterious Rupert who is to deliver them from danger into a better world.

The old and wise tightrope master keeps a watchful, loving eye on his young apprentice who, to his concern, could be drafted into the army at any moment. To make matters worse, the boy falls in love with a mermaid ... Sawdust Tales is a captivating concoction of circus magic, suspenseful high-wire belancing acts, fairground revelry, war-time depravity, a bizarre romance and a pinch of the supernatural.
