Movie Info

A retired circus clown overcomes the pain of his past to reach for the stars once again, only to find his dreams of success fading when his young performing partner is summoned back home to the United States. Six year old Ulli believes Teddy Lemke to be his real father, and Teddy is more than happy to indulge the wide-eyed youngster his fantasy as the pair take up residence in Miss Biermann's boarding house. Then, one day, Ulli discovers a children's clown outfit in the attic of the boarding house, prompting Teddy to finally come clean about his past. Back in the day, Teddy and his son were a famous father/son clown team who entertained the masses under the name "Teddy and Teddy." When the younger Teddy died in a tragic accident, his grieving father went into early retirement. But Ulli is convinced Teddy still has what it takes to be an entertainer, and before long the duo has begun performing together, successfully recapturing the spirit of the original "Teddy and Teddy." Just as the pair approaches the pinnacle of their success, however, everything threatens to fall apart when Ulli receives word that his mother has remarried, and wants her son to be a part of her new life in America. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
