Daily lives of children working in Russian circuses (pt 1/3)

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 spends time rehearsing with 15-year-old Artem Averyushkin, who has been performing in the circus since he was two years old and now works with his parents Andrei and Olga and his older brother, who is a juggler and musical performer. This explores the challenges that children face from the intensive training required and how that is balanced with their education and social lives.
