Description Traces the life of world famous tightwire performer, Con Colleano. During the 1930s and 1940s, he was one of the world's most highly paid circus performers - travelling to the US with the Ringling Brothers. He triumphed over adversity, the denial of his Aboriginal origins abroad, the prejudice against his interracial marriage and the indignity of being forgotten in his own country despite being a hero overseas.
