This unique and hopeful documentary gives the pandemic perspective of students, staff, and alumni from Circus Harmony, St. Louis’ social circus school. The film also looks at the impact of the pandemic, Black Lives Matter movement, and presidential election on young people whose lives will be most affected. From their living rooms, bedrooms, backyards, and local parks, the Circus Harmony family creates new acts and tells the stories of how its members are keeping their balance in this unbalanced time.
