Abstract:

Lucien L'hotte is a troubled writer of diminutive size who struggles with the enormous issues of love, lust and morality. Set up near his office is the Urbino Circus, where a pure-hearted trapeze artist, Isis, strikes up a friendship with the outcast Lucien. When an aging opera star, the Countess Paola Bendoni seeks his services, Lucien's life takes a dramatic turn. He visits Paola and uncharacteristically stages a daring and successful seduction. But unbridled passion turns to deadly rage when Paola eventually rejects Lucien and returns to her husband. Spiraling out of control, Lucien teeters on an emotional tightrope between lunacy and redemption. Resigning from his degrading job, he reunites with Isis and joins the Urbino Circus. As the Red Dwarf, Lucien finds his niche, but still battles his inner demons, as the circus' newest sensation.
