How will a family circus cope after their much-loved crowd pleasing elephant has to leave the ring because of a new law?

The circus belonging to the close-knit family Freidwald was a success for many generations. But now the spirit of the age has turned against them. The number of visitors has decreasesd and regulations are stacked against them. To make matters even worse their elephant Buba – a real crowd pleaser - is forced to leave the country as a result of a new law. The family must therefore reinvent the circus – and itself – all over again.
