It is the beginning of the 20th century. A great party is planned at the Hopspeller Manor. It is the lady Catherine's birthday. The children are all excited. The landlord's daughter Piibe Pauliine, who would rather play in the forests as Pipa, Egon, the factory-owner's son, and Mattis, the gardener's grandson, can't wait for the circus that has been ordered for the birthday party. But when Pipa is asked to help with the production and then disappears, the children find her in a secret box in one of the circus wagons. The wagon takes off and they embark on a series of dangerous adventures the likes of which they never imagined in their dreams.
