Mirette, who works in her mother's boarding house, meets the great high wire walker Bellini and realizes she must become a high wire walker herself. So it's practice, practice, practice for Mirette as her friendship with her teacher grows. Eventually he's the one who needs what she can offer: faith. I love the genuine master-apprentice dynamic here, and the art is beautiful.
