Cute family film stars in a multitude of roles that are brought to life through his gifted performance and William Tuttle’s excellent makeup. A quiet, peaceful turn-of-the-century town has its residents awoken to their true passions when a traveling circus show arrives and gives them spectacles as they’ve never seen before. Hearts are broken, hopes are given and love affairs resolved, all thanks to the various people in the circus–who are really one person with seven faces! Great stuff for the whole family to enjoy, especially the kids.
