Daily lives of children working in Russian circuses (pt 2/3)

Zachariah Fletcher, a 21-year-old actor whose parents were circus performers, travels to Kharkov in Ukraine where he joins Russian circus family the Averyushkins on tour. Zach makes the 500-mile journey back to their home in Moscow, where Artem attends school for an assessment, and Zach explores how growing up as a professional circus performer has affected Artem's childhood. Zach asks whether circus life and family life really are compatible with each other and explores the challenges that children face from the intensive training required, and how that is balanced with their education and social lives.
