"Explores the world of social circus--a movement that brings kids from different worlds together to perform remarkable acts on a professional level. Levinson follows the participants of two specific circuses that also work together periodically: Circus Harmony in St. Louis, whose participants are inner-city and suburban kids, and [Galilee Circus] in Israel, whose participants [are] Jews and Arabs. As the kids' relationships evolve over time, the members learn how to overcome assumptions, animosity, and obstacles both physical and personal"--Amazon.com.
