Summary :

It is autumn and the small circus “Maroni” has given its last performance. Pina, the daughter of the circus director, has had her premiere as an artist rider. After this performance, the circus tent was taken down and the circus people set out for their winter accommodation in a nearby village. They relax over the winter in the large barn belonging to Robin and his mother. First they repair everything for the animals. Then they train and practice juggling etc . When the village children in the school meet the circus children dissensions arise caused by Hoskins and his gang. The gang outline a plan which they intend to carry out on a cold December night. But everything turns out differently, and Hoskins is forced to learn a hard lesson. A close friendship develops between Robin and Pina. Finally they are successful in making friends with Hoskins and his gang.
