Today is the final performance of the season at the Nikulin Circus, and Vladimir is nervous. By tradition, the performers like to play pranks on each other during the last show, and Vladimir has a good one planned for the ringmaster, Boris. After bringing farewell gifts to the circus’ administrative and technical staff, Vladimir takes to the ring. His trick goes off perfectly, but, to everyone’s amusement, Boris gives as good as he gets. However, the star of the show is Vladimir’s small daughter, who can’t get enough of the spotlight even at the age of three. At the final gathering, everyone bids a fond, sad farewell to Vladimir. His time with the Nikulin Circus is over, and their resident star, Aleksey Emelin, will return for next season. However, everyone’s sure that this isn’t the last they will see of Vladimir’s clowning.
