Born into a circus family, 12-year-old Laura has spent much of her young life on tour with her single father, Bill, a professional clown. But, secretly, she longs for a less hectic life. It’s thanks to her new teacher, who recognizes her academic potential, that Laura gets to fulfill her dream: attendance at a private high school… Can free spirit Bill accept that the apple of his eye has fallen so far from the paternal tree?
