Calimucho

Calimucho

A young woman is walking the tightrope of family loyalties in a small circus on the verge of breakdown. The film was shot in an existing circus during its summer tour through Dutch camping grounds. Dicky has an ambivalent relationship with her brother-in-law Willy, the widower of Dicky’s late sister Jena. Dicky takes care of Willy’s little son Timo, and treats him as if he were her own son. When Willy’s parents suggest Timo should go to a boarding school to get a normal education, Dicky is very upset. She cannot understand why Willy doesn’t support her and why he thinks of sending his own son away. Dicky realizes that she must make a drastic choice. This is not the choice between the two men in her life, but between her love for little Timo, her loyalty to her family and the circus, and her own personal freedom.
