MENDING HUGO’S HEART
Hugo has been treading water since he lost Agnes, the love of his life. With the world on his shoulders, going way to fast as usual, on a grey winters day he swerves to avoid something on the road and crashes his bike. He falls headlong to the ground, passes out, and wakes up in the most curious and wonderous place – a circus carriage. It turns out to belong to the kind and slightly confused ringmaster Casall. A new world opens up to countless characters who live far beyond everyday life. A cook who can’t actually cook, a seductive trapeze artist, a clown who is more angry than happy… and beautiful, mysterious Anna. Who is she? What secret is she hiding? Slowly the curtain is pulled to reveal a new and different life. But does Hugo dare to take the step?
A film in true feel-good spirit about hope and love, about daring to let go and winning everything. When magic collides with reality anything can happen.
