Bianna Koslov loves to do gymnastics, but can't seem to keep her mother from dreaming of the day her seven-year-old daughter becomes a prima ballerina ... it's just not Bianna!

While practicing floor routines down in the basement, Bianna finds a large, dusty trunk and an old circus poster tucked away in the corner. Wait a minute, a circus poster? What do these things have to do with her family? Does her father, a Russian Orthodox minister, have any idea where these things came from?

With the help of a nice neighbor lady and a locksmith who loves to clown around, the Koslov family unlocks the secrets of their unique family history.
