Claude is a clown who has it all- a brand new career and a beautiful girl- until the fateful day he gets his draft notice for the Great War (WWI). As the world around him changes for the worse, Claude struggles to rediscover his purpose, until he meets a little girl who shows him why every war needs a clown.
