It is the end of July. A group of young artists from the famous Moscow Circus School has taken their exams and is now spending two weeks' vacation on the shores of Lake Seliger.

Every new day begins with breakfast in front of the artist's small wooden hut, where the magician conjures away the eggs and toast is used for juggling. Together with teacher Igor Teplow, a former star of the circus, the artists then train and perform small shows for the old and forgotten people living in Russia's countryside.

For them, the performance of the jugglers, the clowns and the equilibrists are a highlight in the hardship of their everyday lives. And the young people from Moscow discover a different side of their country - a side that most of them have never experienced before.
