An enchanting journey on the caravan of a family-run Mexican traveling circus, CIRCO is the insiders' tale of family life under the big top, and a document of an almost extinct way of life. Circo Mexico has been family owned and operated since the 19th century. The trade is passed on from one generation to the next, and to be a member of the family is to participate in the business. But as declining audiences threaten the circus' viability, the ties that bind the family loosen, and they face an uncertain future.
