Synopsis

The Falconcrest Circus used to rule the land with its captivating clowns, its feral elephants, and above all else, Don Falconcrest's incredible, identical twin daughters - Elissa and Simone - who soared from the trapeze like falcons in flight. Until tragedy struck in Innsbruck. The death knell for Don Falconcrest's big top empire. To reclaim his former glory, Don Falconcrest is marrying Elissa off to Manwell, an up-and-coming trapeze impresario. Problem is, Elissa is in love with her sister's nurse. Simone, upon witnessing her sister's pain, proves that love commands the selflessness of others.
