    Full title reads: "The Flying Dutchman!"

    Holland (Netherlands).

    M/S of three young men in white cat suits. They back flip themselves onto a large circus safety net. Various shots of men practising acrobatic tricks on trapezes. The narrator explains the boys built the gigantic trapeze frame and safety net themselves, they soon hope to perform in front of audiences. Various slow motion shots of boys swinging and tumbling through the air. In one shot, one tumbles towards another and misses (lucky the net's there!).
