In the 1950s, Circus Kavaros suffers major financial difficulties. After a performance goes wrong, 17-year-old acrobat, Juul, falls into a coma. The doctor pronounces her brain dead. Her father, magician Bor, wanting to keep his daughter with him, kidnaps her from the hospital. 
​​When he performs with Juul as a living puppet, the general public rush back to fill the stands. Within the circus community, there are supporters and detractors of these morbid ​​displays. Bor is convinced that he’s doing his little girl credit by allowing her to shine once more in the circus. But within Juul, who still appears to be conscious, the inner frenzy and despair grow. In silent protest against the humiliations and the loss of her own will, she slowly transforms into living porcelain, until she falls apart into pieces. With much love and patience, her cousin Kaz puts her back together like a human jigsaw.

A coproduction by Fabrique Fantastique (BE), Toon2Tango (D), M.A.R.K.13 (DE), Keplerfilm (NL), Will Production (FR), Mr Miyagi (ES)
