Travelling circus
(Gánh Xiêc Rong)

by VIET Linh

At an unspecified time, in an unspecified mountainous area, a traveling circus arrives supposedly to put on a show, but, in fact, to search for gold. The country is poor and ravaged by drought. The local people, tormented by hunger, do not really intend to come to the show. In order to attract them, the leader of the troupe creates an appealing number : an empty basket that fills itself up with rice. The local people are fascinated by the show and leave their work in the fields to follow the circus troupe and hunt for gold. By the time the poor people realize that they have been fooled, the circus master bas already left without any concern for the great disappointment of these pure and trusting souls.
