Enter the most unlikely setting for a circus – a factory – one where the workers are acrobats and the machines are circus props. When a bird is injured by the main steam boiler, the workers come together to care for it and break out of the monotony of the assembly-line. A contortionist performs on a turntable powered by unicyclists, a trapeze artist spins acrobatically inside of a giant wheel and trampoline wall artists defy the laws of physics in this artful and nostalgic story of love, laughter and flight.
