Storyline

1937. The circus monkeys scream wildly inside their cage while, outside, men kill and die in another circus: the Spanish Civil War. The Stupid Clown, recruited against his will by the Militia, ends up carrying out a bloodbath with a machete against the National soldiers while still wearing his costume. And so commences this eventful adventure in which Javier and Sergio, two terrifyingly disfigured clowns, fight to the death for the ambiguous love of an acrobat during Franco’s reign.
