Duration
85min

Marce, his wife Adriana, their two children Mario and Jacqueline, and her boyfriend, Carmelo, are the only members of the Aztlán Circus. They insist on keeping this small show running because they are convinced of the transcendence of their art. Although their way of life is doubly that of outsiders (because they live apart from society and on the outskirts of Mexico City), at the same time, they marginalize Carmelo because he´s not from a circus family and he doesn´t carry the circus in his blood. Carmelo asks Jacqueline to leave the circus, but she wants to stay because there she feels special and different from other people.
