"Brad Braden est un intransigeant directeur de cirque dont le seul but est que le spectacle puisse continuer, quoiqu'il arrive. Mais son chapiteau est sur le point de connaitre de grosses difficultés : il décide alors d'engager "le grand Sébastien", un audacieux trapéziste, afin de redorer le blason du cirque. Le talent de ce dernier provoque tout à la fois la jalousie et l'admiration de Dolly, la petite amie de Braden, jusqu'alors reine du trapèze.
