Logline: Despite severe pressures, medicine Tara and Mikey Gerbola manage to keep their financially troubled family circus on the road.
Synopsis: Rolling between villages and towns in rural Ireland for nine months of the year, Circus GERBOLA becomes a place outside the ordinary world. It helps us to feel the sense of wonderment and remember the important things in life: desire, affection and astonishment. ‘Dreams of a Clown’ is a universal yet intimate portrait of a family seen through the eyes of 8 year old Blake Gerbola, who is dreaming of following in his father’s big footsteps.
