    • Synopsis
    • In the universe of the movie the artists make a journey to a clown meeting searching for THE ACT. They are looking forward to find a unique performance, surprising, exceptional, that gets to the spectators´ soul. This routine represents the ideals of every artist.
      The narrative structure organizes all the events in only one day, from the morning to the evening, when the lucky ones that got to the big tent sit to enjoy that unique performance.
      The clowns chosen to lead the different action lines represent diverse styles of work, dissimilar origins and paths.
      Each clown family will face conflicts inherent to their belonging group and that situations will resolve with simple staging…solved in a clownish way. Connecting the great clowns with the novice, crossing experiences and presenting differences.
      The portraits of these characters articulate in the narration through an acrobat who infiltrates in the meeting with a camera to reveal the secret world of clowns…that infiltrate is actually the director, a documentarian-acrobat.
