Biography of Grock,the greatest clown in history,beginning at WW2.

The aging clown meets a boy in the street,called Adrien,who goes to the school he used to go when he was a pupil;he tells him they have the same first name and a long flashback shows the artist's childhood,youth ,and rise to fame;the facts concerning Hitler are passed over in silence.

Return to the present with the declaration of war :a scene at the border ,where Grock performs an impromptu show to entertain the scared children(and grownups).

Grock spoke 6 languages and we see him perform in French,English,German... If you intend to Watch this movie,be warned that half of the movie consists of musician clowns acts performed by the artist and his partners:if you like it,you will be overjoyed;if you don't, you must move on.

A father brings his son Adrien to Grock and tells him his boy wants to grow up to be a clown too;the show must go on!
