Synopsis by Hot Docs

Louis has always lived the carnival life. He and his family travel from fairground to fairground with their Ferris wheel, living life in constant motion. But when Louis becomes too old for the fairground classroom, he must move away from his family to attend school, leaving his little brother behind. This moving portrait examines the family unit and the unshakeable bonds of brotherly love. Amira Abdellahi
