When Matt Masters (John Wayne) takes his ailing circus on a tour of Europe, it's not simply to put its finances back into order. He's also there on a romantic quest to find his old flame Lili Alfredo (Rita Hayworth), whose daughter Toni (Claudia Cardinale) he raised.

But the show must go on -- and Masters pulls out all the stops to make the tour a success and reunite with Lili.
