“The circus arrives without warning,
no announcements precede it.
It is simply there,
when yesterday it was not.”
The circus opens at nightfall and closes at dawn. Firstly introduced during the 19th-century Victorian London it travels all around the world followed by a group of enthusiast dreamers forever charmed to its wonderful magic. Every night under the white and black striped tents a series of magic tricks are displayed, so incredible and sophisticated shows look magical.
But behind the scenes, a spell competition is underway and just a
few know about it: between Celia and Marco, two young magicians who have been trained since childhood by their instructors, two mysterious masters of the occult, and reciprocal rivals since the dawn of time.
While every night Celia the illusionist fascinates her audience, the discreet Marco, hired as a personal assistant to the circus owner, counterattacks displaying more powerful and elaborate shows.
However, Nobody has taken into account that Celia and Marco would inevitably fall in love, a deep and extraordinary feeling burning dangerously at each stolen glance and overwhelming the entire room at every touch. The duel between Celia and Marco cannot last forever and just one of them will get the upper hand.
Years go by and the circus becomes more and more famous but the destiny of all the people who contributed to this wonderful place is precarious, like acrobats vaulting in the air every night under the circus tent.
