A 45-year-old Russian man travels through Poland with a circus. One night, he lets the animals out of their cages and watches in delight as the tigers, camels, and elephants walk through the market square of the sleepy town. The next day, he loses his job. He begins traveling on his own and meets Angela and the Kid. They start to perform on the streets together. The Master throws knives, Angela assists him and the kid plays the accordion. The Master wants to get to Paris, where he thinks his artistry will be appreciated.
