Stripped of her rightful position as Ringleader after her mother’s untimely death, young Hamlet needs to plot her way back up the ladder of the Circus of Elsinore. But when Claudius, the new Ringleader, keeps getting in the way she’s left asking herself: What’s a girl to do when her uncle is now her step-dad, her old friends have been hired to spy on her, and the circus she’s grown up in is falling apart?
All this while navigating grief for her late mother, and complicated feelings for the young girl playing the mermaid act - Ophelia. It seems that murder might be the only way out of this mess.
