The film takes off in 1937, with a sad clown from a travelling circus, attacking Franco's army with a machete. About 35 years later, the clown's son, Javier, has followed in his father's footsteps. In the circus, he meets Natalia, a beautiful trapeze artist, who is dating Javier's crude act partner. He becomes infatuated with her and gets pushed to the edge of insanity in the name of love.
