The Trick

In 1934 Prague a rabbi’s son falls in love, joins a circus, and eventually becomes the great Zabbatini, with a spell for eternal love. In the 20-aughts a boy faces his parents’ divorce along with his 11th birthday, and needs that spell. This humorous and poignant saga brings them together and tells the story of the 20th century with verve.
