Zirkusfilm der DEFA in dem der genreübliche Generationskonflikt in einer Artistenfamilie auf konventionelle Weise behandelt wird.

Drei erwachsene Söhne widersetzen sich der autoritären Führung des Zirkusunternehmens durch ihre Mutter. Erst später bemerken sie, daß die Erfahrungen der Älteren auch für sie von Bedeutung sind. Künstlerisch durchschnittlicher Film aus dem Zirkusmilieu
