Beloved children's funnyman Pee-Wee Herman stars in his second full-length feature as a farmer who joins the circus when a giant storm dumps a Big Top on his front yard. Together, Pee-Wee, the animals, and a troupe of daring and talented circus performers put on the best show ever, while love blooms between the shy farm-boy and Gina the trapeze artist (Valeria Golino)--much to the dismay of Pee-Wee's fiancee Winnie (Penelope Ann Miller).
