Dat and his sister live with their eternally drunk father in a small village in the Vietnamese mountains. One day a travelling circus appears. Dat makes friends with the girl from the circus: He hopes to get behind the trick with which the jugglers suddenly conjure up rice for everyone from an empty basket. Could Dat and his sister, could all the starving people from now on have enough to eat through this incredible miracle? Dat is bitterly disappointed: everything was just dizziness and lazy magic.
Set in the central highlands of Vietnam, Travelling Circus is a bittersweet story of famine-ridden villagers and was one of the most internationally acclaimed Vietnamese movies from the 1980s.
