Balada triste de trompeta comienza en 1937: los monos de un circo aúllan salvajes dentro de su jaula mientras, en el exterior, los hombres se matan en otro circo: la guerra civil española, que sigue su curso. El payaso tonto del circo, reclutado a la fuerza por los milicianos, termina perpetrando, sin abandonar su disfraz, una carnicería a machetazos entre las filas del bando Nacional. Muchos años después, durante la dictadura de Franco, Javier, hijo del payaso miliciano, busca trabajo como payaso triste en un circo, donde coincide con un estrambótico elenco de personajes marginales, como un hombre bala, un domador de elefantes o una mal avenida pareja de amaestradores de perros. Su camino, además se cruza allí con Sergio. Así da comienzo esta peripecia en que Javier y Sergio, dos payasos terroríficos y desfigurados, corroídos por la ira y la desesperación, se enfrentan a la muerte por el amor de una bailarina, la mujer más bella y cruel del circo
