Summary: Charlie, a very gifted, young acrobat, cannot find employment. A dance and colleague, whom he trained, has gotten him a job as a stagehand at a vaudeville theatre. After a number of chaotic events and some highs and lows -- none of which ever discourages him -- his hour arrives: an act can't go on and "Akrobat schooon" can finally make his grand entrance.
