Dmitry Shindrov is getting ready for his big debut in St. Petersburg. He’s decided to employ a classic crowd pleaser in his act – giant balloons. However, on picking them up at the factory, Dmitry’s plans hit a nasty snag. To aid him in his preparations, a very patient designer helps Dmitry with his costume and veteran clown Aleksey Emelin teaches him some of the finer points of getting the audience to give their full attention to his stunts. Vladimir explains that his former sidekick's supporting role in the Nikulin Circus wasn’t that important to the show’s success, but as the lead clown, his performance will be crucial. He says they will have to wait to see what Dmitry’s really made of.
