My Family is a Circus

(Circus zonder tent)

Romy is a sweet 10-year-old girl and her classmates love her. However, they have to say goodbye to her for six months. Their friend is from a circus family – and they’re about to change venue.

Romy tries to stay in touch with her class even from afar. She writes to her classmates and her teacher sends her homework via Skype. But most of the time she’s practising acrobatics, training her dog and, above all, regularly performing outdoors at an amusement park. She, her parents and her brother must take part, rain or shine. They would like to earn enough to buy a circus tent, so sometimes they just have to grit their teeth. Romy is from the sixth generation of a circus family and her big dream is to master the flying trapeze, as her grandmother once did.
