Description
As a young man during the Great Depression, Jacob Jankowski is tossed by fate onto a rickety train that is home to the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. For Jacob, the circus is both his salvation and a living hell. Put in charge of caring for the circus menagerie, he meets Marlena, a beautiful equestrian star married to a charismatic, but twisted, animal trainer. And he meets Rosie, a seemingly untrainable elephant who is the great gray hope for the third-rate traveling show. The bond that grows among this unlikely trio is ultimately their only hope for survival.
