A family of circus performers try to keep traditional values while adapting to modern entertainment.
As the popularity of the traditional circus continues to fade, a family that has made their living in the striped tent for nine generations prepares to make the plunge by establishing their own family circus and ensure that the show goes on.
Few animal trainers are as highly respected as the legendary Rosaire family. The proud descendents of court jesters and acrobats who once captivated audiences all across Europe, the Rosaire family has distinguished themselves from the pack with their unique and respectful approach to animal training.
Still, the Rosaires are well aware that their unique way of life is quickly coming to an end, and in the wake of two unforeseen tragedies it quickly becomes apparent that the only means of maintaining their unique tradition may be to finally establish a circus of their own.
"Charming and affecting!"

"Circus Rosaire is a charming, engaging gem of an indie film, and audiences both young and old will find much to like in it."
