A tale of two circuses, two cultures, and one vision: inspiring resilience in struggling communities

Two circuses from opposite and remote corners of the globe share the same dream: to bring hope and change to their communities. It’s a tale that unfolds in the Canadian Arctic and in Guinea, West Africa, with two world-class acrobats helping Inuit and Guinean youth to achieve previously unimaginable success – while confronting suicide, poverty, and despair. This portrayal of a culture-crossing experience offers an inspiring story of resilience and joy.
