The action takes place on the outskirts of a small town in the south of France, soon after World War II. Lili, an innocent young woman, seeks employment in a seedy carnival touring the south of France. She soon becomes the pawn in a fierce rivalry between Marco the Magnificent, the troupe's compulsively womanizing magician and Paul Berthalet, a former French Resistance hero who was once a brilliant dancer but transformed by injury into an embittered puppeteer. With a glorious score filled with unmistakably familiar tunes, this romantic musical is bound to tug at your heartstrings!
