Yo Yo is the son of a 1920s billionaire who, although having everything he fancies and living in a cavernous old castle, is not happy, fancying the simple life of a beautiful circus actress. When the stock-exchange crashes, rendering him both poor and free. Thus, he joins the circus where his love interest is performing, and fall madly in love. They have a son who starts in the circus as a clown, but later becomes a successful actor star and uses his new wealth to buy back his father's castle.
