Abandoning her previous dance dreams, Sophie sets off to reclaim Limba, charming her way into a summer job with the circus so she can keep an eye on the despiteful animal trainer. When Sophie falls in love with circus artist Blake, they both struggle to rescue Limba from the cruel circus environment and repatriate the Elephant...
