    • Synopsis
    • When the deafening rattle of war dies away, Stevo, scared, runs around the warfare-ravaged field where his house stands badly damaged. He has been left alone with his daughter and son, as his wife has been killed by one of the grenades. When it seems that the worst is over, a terrible rumble can be heard from a distance, drawing closer to the house. After several moments of agony and tension Stevo discovers, confused, that the vehicle that stopped in front of the house is not another killing machine, but a rather unusual vehicle of Circus Fantasticus, containing a group of bizarre but utterly human.
