The best aerial technique won´t land 21-year-old Thora James her dream role in Amour, a sexy new acrobatic show on the Vegas strip. Thora knows she´s out of her element the second she meets Amour´s leading performer. Confident, charming, and devilishly captivating, 26-year-old Nikolai Kotova lives up to his nickname as the ´´God of Russia´´. When Thora unknowingly walks into the crosshairs of Nikolai´s after-show, her audition process begins way too soon. Unprofessional. That´s what Nik calls their ´´nonexistent´´ relationship, but it´s not like Thora can avoid him. For one, they may be partners in the future - acrobatic partners, that is. But getting closer to Nik means diving deeper into sin city and into his dizzying world. Thora wants to perform with him, but when someone like Nikolai attracts the spotlight wherever he goes, Thora fears that she´s destined to remain in the background of his spellbinding show. 1.

´´Don´t have a best friend that´s a girl´´ - this was the advice from my older cousin. I didn´t take it. Because he followed with, ´´friends don´t f--k friends. And you´ll want to f--k her.´´ It was terrible advice. My cousin should´ve told me that being best friends with Baylee Wright - since she was 12 - would be the best and worst decision of my life. He should have told me to protect her from what was coming. He should have told me that when a darkness crawled towards us, there´d be no safety net. Now I´ve signed back on to the same Vegas acrobatic show as Baylee, working together for the first time in years. And she tells me that she´s having trouble in a certain ´´area´´ of her life - because of our past. ´´You can help me fix it,´´ she says. And then she hands me a list. 1. Language: English.

Come inside and take a seat; the show is about to begin.... Outside any city still standing, the Mechanical Circus Tresaulti sets up its tents. Crowds pack the benches to gawk at the brass-and-copper troupe and their impossible feats: Ayar the Strong Man, the acrobatic Grimaldi Brothers, fearless Elena and her aerialists who perform on living trapezes. War is everywhere, but while the Circus is performing, the world is magic. That magic is no accident: Boss builds her circus from the bones out, molding a mechanical company that will survive the unforgiving landscape. But even a careful ringmaster can make mistakes. Two of Tresaulti´s performers are entangled in a secret standoff that threatens to tear the circus apart just as the war lands on their doorstep. Now the Circus must fight a war on two fronts: one from the outside, and a more dangerous one from within. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Aiello.
