Sometimes life is not what it seems.
Sometimes it’s not about nine-to-five and six-figure incomes.
Sometimes it’s about listening to your own voice and living by your own rules.
Sometimes there are ups… and sometimes there are downs.
P.T. Barnum said…”A sucker’s born every minute” – but aren’t dreams meant for everyone? It’s catching those dreams that, at times, can prove elusive. But it makes for an interesting journey along the way.
At least it is for Brian Flint.
The one time Olympian hopeful and investment banker turned his life upside down, threw caution to the wind, and literally joined the circus!
As one of the world’s leading trapeze aerialists, join us as we follow Brian’s eight-year journey to reach the apex of his desire, to be part of the greatest human circus of all time – Cirque du Soleil. Chronicled lovingly by his twin brother, filmmaker Kevin Flint, Brian starts out rough but ultimately excels at his chosen profession.
Along the way the brothers meet up with some extraordinary characters who impart wisdom, teach life lessons and show us how character is not inherent in who we are but born and bred, molded and shaped by the people we meet along the way.
An endearing story of life’s passion, of being knocked down yet yielding to no one on the journey back to the top, of utter desperation and true exaltation and finally finding the beauty that is life.
“Catching Dreams” reminds us that when all else crumbles and falls away the certain truth that “life is a circus” remains and uplifts.
