Circus

Meet La Luz

Clip | 3m 4s

Big Apple Circus electrician Raul Lancheros, affectionately nicknamed "La Luz," used to fly trapeze before a career-ending injury forced him to find other means of work. As a teenager, La Luz ran away to join the circus, and hasn't seen his family since. After years of searching, La Luz finally locates his family and anxiously looks forward to a reunion that's 50 years in the making.
