    • Synopsis
    • Juliet is a teen clown girl living with her peculiar family, a nomadic circus troupe. Her life is drastically changed when her parents decide to leave the circus behind and take a chance in a big city. Always dressing up their clown costumes, the family faces a series of difficulties during their adaptation to this new life with humor and joy. While her parents struggle to fit in the crazy urban lifestyle, Juliet makes new friends and put up a circus show in the neighbourhood. Performances, magic tricks, music, mystery and a lot of fun end up bringing circus tradition to the city, melting some cold hearts and presenting to the world the powers of the most precious symbol of this clown family: the Dandelion flower.
